Welcome to Room 14 where we Dive Into Learning!

β€œThe important thing is not so much
that every child should be taught,
as that every child should be given the wish to learn.”
-John Lubbock
It is wonderful to be teaching 2nd grade here at Darnall Charter School. I have been teaching elementary school for the past fifteen years.  I love to see how much my students grow during the year! 
I graduated with a BA in history from San Diego State, where I also competed on the Aztec Rowing Team. After graduating from SDSU, I spent a year in Boston, MA as an intern teacher. I then returned home to receive my teaching credential through UCLA. After three years of teaching, I earned my Masters in Education through Concordia University.
In my free time you can find me reading, cooking, hiking, or exploring a new area. Reading is a passion of mine, and I strongly encourage all of my students to enjoy reading!
Reading is a very important part of second grade. It is vital that students spend at least 20 minutes reading every day! This daily practice will help improve their reading ability.
Goal -- To develop life-long critical thinkers, who will continue to love learning!

Teacher Quote:
"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child." -- Forest Witcraft
