I have been teaching kindergarten in Sonoma Valley for 13 years. I currently teach transitional kindergarten at Sassarini School and enjoy preparing my young, energetic, enthusiastic students with the basic skills and foundations that they'll need in the years ahead. I have a BA degree in Developmental Psychology from U.C. Santa Barbara and received my teaching credential from Dominican University in San Rafael. I have two grown children, Allison and Michael. Allison is married and is an RN at SF General Hospital. Michael is a recent graduate of Columbia University with a degree in Material Science and Engineering. Most of my free time is spent with family and friends, entertaining, traveling, and doing arts and crafts.
