    Hello and welcome to the 2018-19 school year!  This is my 13th year working at UPCS.  Before coming to UPS, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and my Masters degree in Education with an emphasis on Curriculum and Instruction.  This is my 19th year teaching in grades K-3.  I am also a parent of two girls, Madison and Makenna.  
    Sra. A and I have been working together in K/1 for the past 6 years.  We are a great team and love what we do!

       Welcome! I received a B.A. in Human Development in 2002 from UC San Diego. My focus of study was language and brain development. During my time at UCSD, I interned with the Project in Cognitive and Neural Development and assisted in bilingual brain research. After moving back to Ventura County I pursued my multiple subject teaching credential from CSU Channel Islands in 2004. I have worked at University Preparation School since 2004 as a Specialist, a Team Teacher, and a teacher in both the language enrichment program and the dual language program. I received my Masters in Educational Administration from Concordia University in 2014. This is my 10th year teaching Spanish in the dual-language program. I have two boys, Phoenix and Leonidas, and one girl, Persephone.
