Grade 1 - Room 22
Santiago K-8 School: (714) 564-8400
 Welcome to my page parents and students!
Professional Information: This year I will be starting my 19th year of teaching in the district of Santa Ana. Aside from first grade, I have taught 2nd grade, 4th, 5th, and 7th. Right before coming to Santiago, I had the exciting opportunity to be a district trainer for several schools across the district informing teachers of new state standards and teaching strategies. I am G.A.T.E trained and have taught students at different grade levels how to think critically and apply concepts of depth and complexity across all subject areas.
Personal Information: I am married and have two wonderful children, Matthew and Natalee. My oldest will be starting high school. My youngest will be starting 6th this year. I love sports (go Angels!), hiking, and vacationing with my family. I am involved with our school's VAPA program and absolutely love it! 
To contact me please call the school or email me (fastest way to contact me) at: Once we get started with the school year, I will be sending information on how to log on to Class Tag. This app will allow us to communicate easily throughout the year along with sharing pictures/events from our class activities.
I look forward to getting to know all of your families soon!
