Hello My Name Is...
I am proud to be working side by side with my sixth graders this year. I grew up in Kings County, namely Lemoore. I am an Island alumnus, and LHS graduate. I also graduated from Lemoore West Hills and Fresno Pacific University. I have my Multiple and Foundational Level Math credentials. I hold a Masters in Teaching, from FPU.
I have 3 boys, ages 18, 20, & 21, and my husband. My oldest will be entering Fresno State in the Spring 2017 to get his degree in math, and onto his teaching credential. My middle son is in his engineering program thru Arizona State, and has been working up the ranks as a Crew Lead for Solar City. He installs solar panels. My youngest is attending West Hills to pursue a career in law enforcement. He got a head start this summer and took classes. He will finish his fall semester with 24 units already. My husband just moved to work as a Fiber Tech for AT&T. Prior to moving to fiber, he worked on the Construction and Maintenance teams. This is my 6th year of teaching. Prior to coming to Akers, I spent time teaching alternative education at the high school level, in Coalinga and Lemoore.
This year has already been phenomenal for me. I have to credit my wonderful students and the staff at Akers, along with my supportive parents. Students are learning to be accurate and persevere. We will be trying new apps on the iPad to make learning fun. This is going to be another great year!
