The path that led me to Education came in a very roundabout way. As a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. By the time I finished high school, I decided to take a completely different route and after many grueling years of studying numbers, codes and formulas, I graduated with my BSEE in Computer Engineering from San Diego State University. For seven years, I programmed hardware and absolutely loved it! Then, after having 2 kids, experiencing being a SAHM (code for stay-at-home-mom), and having my own wedding biz, I finally decided that I wanted to pursue what I knew was always in my heart… working with children and adding my third “little” to make our family of 5. My journey into education started when I had the honor and privilege to become part of HTe/HTMCV’s staff shortly after the school started it’s 2011-2012 school year. I completed the HTH Credentialing Program as an Education Specialist and have since continued to support our students academically, socially, and behaviorally. I’ve developed a true passion for our “littles” and am extremely excited to be part of HTeCV as an Education Specialist, supporting our kinder and 1st grade teams for the 2020-2021 school year!
