    I consult with school staff and parents in the areas of learning, program planning, social development, and emotional wellness.  I am a Student Study Team member, an IEP team member, and the 504 plan coordinator.   I am an integral part of school assessment teams. 

    I have worked as a reading specialist and general education teacher (grades 2, 3, & 4).   I was a Bruin, a Trojan, and a Matador (CSUN).  California credentials include: multiple subject, reading specialist, pupil personnel services, advanced pupil personnel services, and community college instructor.  I am a Licensed Educational Psychologist through the Board of Behavioral Science Examiners, State of California.  It is a privilege and honor to work within this involved and passionate community.  Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.

    Speech Language Pathologist

    As a Speech Language Pathologist I have the pleasure of working with a variety of students and their families. I serve students across all grade levels with a wide array of communication challenges. I help students with production of speech sounds, management of vocal pathologies and stuttering, as well as all aspects of language comprehension and expression. I take great pleasure in seeing children work through their speech and language challenges to become confident and accomplished communicators. 

    I have enjoyed working for Del Mar Union School District as a Speech Language Pathologist since 2000. I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees from SDSU in Communicative Disorders. I hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from American Speech Language and Hearing Association as well as a license in Speech Pathology from the state of California.

    Adaptive Physical Education

     

     
    For those of you who don’t know me, I would like to introduce myself and share a little bit about my program and myself.  I have a degree in Sociology and a minor in coaching from UC Santa Barbara.   I obtained a degree in Physical Education and an Adapted P.E. Specialist Credential at Cal State Long Beach.  I taught Adapted P.E. for 9 years in Redondo Beach.  This will be my 13th year teaching APE for DMUSD.  My husband Scott and I have 6th grade twin girls, who attend school in Carlsbad.  I am so fortunate to work with such amazing staff and students at my various sites all these years!

    My curriculum includes developmentally appropriate movement activities, games, and sports suited to the interests, strengths, and individual needs of each student.  We will begin each class with a warm-up routine, stretching, body awareness and movements to songs.  Some of the activities we’ll be working on throughout the school year include:  ball skills, catching, throwing, kicking, striking, jump ropes, balance activities, parachute, scooter boards, hula hoops, modified team sport activities, and IEP objectives.
