I live in Garden Grove with my husband Tyler and our two amazing daughters. Sidney is 20-years-old and she attends OCC and works at Disneyland. Samantha is 12-years-old and a 7th grader who enjoys cheerleading and crafting. We share our home with our 7 fantastic pets. I enjoy working in my garden, going to the beach, and watching Dodgers baseball! I have taught kindergarten for 5 years, sixth grade for 1 year, and worked as an instructional assistant for special education for 3 years. I look forward to having a positive and productive school year in TK at TLC!
I was born, raised, and currently live in Orange. I earned my general education teaching credential from Hope International University in 2018. I have a bachelors in Fine Art from Laguna College of Art and Design. I look forward to using my creative side in the 1st/2nd grade classroom and with the rest of the TLC community. I will also be celebrating my marriage to the coolest man ever at the end of this year. If I’m not at school, I’m either sailing around the coast, camping on the beach, or napping on my couch with my cute dog, Guy.
I’m one of TLC’s music instructors, co-teaching along Miss Justine’s side. I work at Danman’s Music School in Dana Point where I teach private lessons to all ages. I primarily teach ukulele, guitar, piano and voice. I love working with children and helping them play songs they enjoy, as well as guiding them to the point that they feel equipped to make their own music! I’m currently working toward my Music Ed degree at Saddleback College.
I grew up in San Clemente playing music at school, taking piano lessons, and started performing in bands at age 11. I graduated from OCSA’s commercial music program in 2013 and have continued to study at Saddleback. I’ve been teaching private lessons at Danman’s Music School for 6 years and am super excited about this year teaching music to all grades at TLC with Miss Grace!
