"My teaching career began in Lemoore and Laton public schools. I taught first grade, K–1 combination, and also worked as a Reading Resource Teacher. While teaching in Lemoore, I was selected to serve as a mentor teacher for both new and experienced teachers. My focus was English Language Development and classroom management. Although I did not attend Catholic schools, my husband and I had a fervent desire for our children to receive a Catholic education. All of our children have attended or currently attend SRM. I understand and appreciate the sacrifices parents make to send their children to SRM. At SRM there are two things that I love about my job: first is that my job is a ministry where I can openly pray and talk about God in all I do; and, second, is seeing the enthusiasm and joy that the children bring to school each day."
