I was the type of student who entered college without a clear picture of where I was headed, but everything changed the semester I took a class in child development. Suddenly, I found my focus and went on to graduate from CSUF with a BA degree in Liberal Studies and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I began my career in 2006 and have taught both first and fourth grades. First is the perfect fit for me because I am able to watch my students grow as they progress from first to fifth graders. The greatest compliment is having a former student come back to visit me after they have moved on from Tamura. I am fortunate to job share with Mrs. Siefker which affords me precious time with my two AMAZING children.
