Welcome! This is my first year at Olive Drive Elementary and I am excited to become a part of this community! I am a Bakersfield native and have been married for four years. I earned my BA in Political Science Pre-law with a minor in Psychology from Cal State Bakersfield. I earned my credential through Cal State TEACH based out of Fresno State and am currently in a graduate program at Vanguard University where I will graduate this December with my M.A. in Leadership. This is my third year teaching third grade and I absolutely love it! I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your families. I'm excited for a great year of learning, fun, and relationship building!
