I am so excited to be starting my 17th year at Meadows and my 15th year in 3rd grade. Time sure has flown by! Meadows is awesome and 3rd grade is the best! Believe it or not, I actually went to Meadows. True story! Before coming to Meadows I taught in Poway, CA for 7 years. I have a fabulous husband, 2 wonderful daughters, and a son-in-law. My oldest, Kayla, is in law school in Oregon and my youngest, Shauna, is a senior at the University of Missouri. Where has the time gone? I had a wonderful black lab named CJ until this summer. Unfortunately, he passed away in July - but he did live a long life since he was almost 13. When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling with my family, running, bike riding, and reading. Life is good!
