Welcome to 2nd Grade!  I am so excited to be your teacher this year!  Let's learn together and make this crazy time into something memorable!  Here's a little about me... I grew up here in Bakersfield, and attended Norris Middle School.  I then continued on to Centennial High School.  After graduating I attended Bakersfield College for two years, then transferred to Cal State University, Bakersfield.  There I received my Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Child Development, as well as my Teaching Credential. I have been teaching second grade, since 2006 at Norris Elementary. I have been married since 2009 to my wonderful husband Josh.  We have one child, Uriah, who was born in 2013.
