6th Grade GATE Teacher
Hello! Thanks for visiting my website. This is my fifteenth year teaching GATE in the Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District. Several years ago I moved from Woodsboro Elementary where I taught 5th and 6th grade GATE for 5 years. I taught fifth and sixth grades in the Ontario-Montclair School District when I started my career. My two, now adult children, attended school in this district. They were both GATE-identified so I have a dual perspective as both parent and teacher regarding GATE students.
I look forward to beginning another great year at Golden. I want to keep communication open between school and home so please feel free to send a note, leave me a message, or email me any time and I will get back to you as soon as possible. A helpful home-school connection feature is the assignment links in this webpage where students and parents may log on to check due dates, upcoming test dates, projects, etc.Thanks!
