This is my second year teaching at Rogers, and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with this group of kids! I taught in Southern California for 10 years before "retiring" to raise our kids. I enjoy outdoor adventuring, reading a book on my outdoor swing, watching musicals, and eating savory food. I believe children will prosper and grow in an academic setting as long as they have the resources, boundaries, challenges, and freedom to make their academic career what they need it to be. I will help them cultivate the "joy of learning" this year.
