Welcome to Third Grade!

The future of America is in our classroom!
Hello! Welcome to Third Grade!
 
I'm a Southern California girl!  I love my family and living my faith. I recently married and am quickly learning the ways of a being military wife. 
 
Here are a few of my favorite things:
I love the color green. My favorite thing to eat is pizza, and my two favorite drinks are English Breakfast tea and Coke Zero. Peonies are my favorite flower. I love reading!
 
I have been teaching for six years, this is my fourth year at OLA. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies at California Lutheran University. I continued my education and received my Master's Degree and California Teaching Credential at Loyola Marymount University.
