I am very excited to join the community at Thomas Paine Elementary! I have worked in the field of special education for 18 years. I have served as an educator and administrator for Garden Grove Unified for 9 years. Prior to that, I worked in Los Angeles, as well as the Bay Area.
In addition to working as an educator, I have three sons, ages 6, 11, and 14. As a parent of an autistic elementary age student, I understand the importance of collaboration between home and school for ensuring positive student outcomes and growth.
I am committed to providing the students at Paine with the support, services and resources they need to succeed. I look forward to partnering with our families and community to promote academic skills and social emotional well being for lifelong success.
