I am grateful for the opportunity to be your child's teacher here at the Academy.  

My educational philosophy includes:

  • all children can learn and they learn in different ways
  • students need to feel safe and supported
  • students need to learn from a base of passion (whatever is intrinsically interesting to them)
  • deliberate and consistent practice is essential for developing grit
  • grit is more important in creating success than talent
  • we operate from a growth mindset, not a fixed one


  • Over sixteen years of teaching experience in Mesa Public Schools and in the San Francisco Unified School District;  
  • B.A. in Psychology and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Rochester;
  • M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from NAU and M.A. in Educational Technology (SFSU);
  • Children's Book Author and Illustrator (Mia, Esther and the Stars, Kevin the Complainer, Chloe the Clingfish, Kevin and His YouTube Channel);
  • National Science Foundation Grant Recipient for Educational Research;
  • 1st degree Black Belt (Chung Kim's Black Belt Academy in Davenport, IA);
  • I play the piano and cello. In my spare time, I love reading books and writing.


Working with students of all ages (children and adults) is my passion. I encourage you to reach out to me at any time regarding your child's progress. Having support both at home and at school is essential for your child's success!
