This is my 19th year with most of them at Twin Oaks Elementary School.  This is my third career.  I grew up in a small suburb of New Jersey and graduated with an English degree from Hofstra University.  My first job was in the Biochemistry Department of Rutgers Medical School and began my first career in science.  I enjoyed researching collagen, nucleolar proteins and pepsin over the next ten years.  I left the workplace to raise my two girls Katie and Dana.  As they were going through elementary school, I became a noon time supervisor, an instructional aide, and PTO president.  It was then that I fell in love with teaching.  CSUSM was where I received my teaching credential.  It was the best decision ever and the rest is history.  I can't imagine doing anything else. When I am not at Twin Oaks, I enjoy reading and spending time with my horses.
