Welcome! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year. This will be my second year teaching First grade at Dixon Elementary. I’m thrilled to be part of the Dixon Family.
I am originally from Guam but I was raised in California and Hawaii. I have been married to my husband for almost 20 years (Gasp!Time flies). Together we have 2 beautiful children. My daughter will be starting her Junior year at UNCW and my son is a Freshman at Dixon High School. We also have 2 furbabies named Kapono and Kona. We have been living in Eastern North Carolina for over 7 years. We are a military family and have lived in Hawaii, California, Seattle, and mainland Japan. That said, we are finally settling down and will be calling this beautiful state our forever home.
I am passionate about teaching my littles and seeing their smiling faces. Children learn best in a positive loving environment. I believe in fostering a classroom community where students can be challenged, that it’s okay to make mistakes and understand that it takes EFFORT to excel.
I look forward to a fabulous 2020-21 school year!
