About Me

My teaching career began in 2009 when I taught English as a foreign language in a public elementary school in Seoul, South Korea. I fell in love with teaching but missed my family and the beautiful California weather, so I decided to come back and pursue my credential at UC Irvine. 

This is my fifth year at Hawthorne School and I'm so excited to be teaching fifth grade this year! The group of students that are in fifth grade now is the same group that was in first grade when I was a first grade teacher, my first year at Hawthorne!
