I am excited to continue my teaching career at Hillcrest this year. I have previously taught Early Childhood Special Education for 5 years at a previous school district and taught at HeadStart before that.  I have over 20 years experience in working with young children.  I do have three children of my own, two step children and a grandchild. I am looking forward to an exciting year with your children.  Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any questions or concerns. I will do my best to respond the same day.




Hello, I have worked at Hillcrest for the past 4 years. Before working at Hillcrest, I worked as a preschool teacher at Kindercare for 6 years. I have two beautiful boys and one on the way. Caden is 9 and Carson is 1.
