I am excited to be back in the Audubon Family! I have been teaching in the Audubon Park and Baldwin Park areas for over 10 years. When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, traveling with my husband, and trying new restaurants with friends. I can’t wait to join the Kindergarten Team and welcome my new baby Falcons this fall!
