Welcome to Yorba Linda High School. Saying that I am thrilled to be here is an understatement. When I look back upon my childhood, I would have never guessed that I would be here. Surprisingly, I used to live right down the street from YLHS and I even learned how to ride my bike in the parking lot of the school. I can honestly say that much of my life is like a bike ride. What an adventure!
I am proud to say that I am a product of the Placentia- Yorba Linda Unified School District. I attended Fairmont Elementary School, Bernardo Yorba Middle School, and Esperanza High School.
After graduating from Esperanza, I attended California Baptist University in Riverside, California. I earned my Bachelor of Arts with an emphasis in English; my teaching credential; and my Master's degree in English. This is my eleventh year of teaching and I am just as excited this year as I was my first year. Teaching is my passion and I cannot wait to share my passion with all of you. Needless to say, it is an honor to be a part of the Mustang family. It is exactly where I want to be.
I have been married for six years to Mr. Shay who teaches at Travis Ranch and I have a two year old son, Benjamin. Together, the three of us love to travel, cheer on the Oregon State Beavers, and hang out with our families. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening, and taking pictures.
This year is sure to be memorable. I look forward to working with all of you. Feel free to visit the class website and register as a member to receive updates. I look forward to meeting all of you.
