Welcome to Kindergarten!
For many of you this might be your first experience as a Kindergarten parent or it might be your fifth. I am so excited to take this journey with your family as your child’s first teacher at MATES. 

I grew up here in Thousand Oaks and was lucky enough to student teach at MATES while earning my credential from California State University, Channel Islands. I earned my Masters Degree in Teaching from Grand Canyon University. While I was student teaching here I knew this was a very special school. The relationships that form here between students, parents and staff are unlike any other. I am excited to be starting my seventh year in Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year.  
My husband and I have a two daughters, Katherine (2) and Michaela (born in April). When I’m not at school (ha!) I enjoy being with my family, crafting, spending time outdoors, and taking pictures. I’m truly discovering first hand how fast kids develop and I look forward to partnering with you this school year as we watch these kiddos blossom!
