Fairfax Elective Teacher - P.E.
I was born in Granada Hills, CA. My favorite subject in school was definitely PE, but I also enjoyed Science. I grew up loving soccer and went on to play College Soccer at College of the Canyons. I still enjoy playing from time to time, but mostly enjoy spending time with my kids. I have a son, Ryan who is 6 and twin daughters, Eva and Demi who are 1. I graduated from COC in 2008 with an A.S. Degree in Fire & Technology with the hopes of being a firefighter, but found my real passion which is teaching. I am currently enrolled in ASU’s Online program and will be achieving my B.S. Degree in Health Sciences – Healthy Lifestyles Coaching. I’ve worked at LCS for 8 years and enjoy every minute of it.
