Meet Mrs. M

I come from a family of teachers.  My grandmother began her career as a schoolteacher in Minnesota and has vivid memories of walking to work to light the stove for the one-room schoolhouse before the students came in everyday.  My mother is still working as a third grade teacher and used to put me to work in her classroom regularly when I was in high school.  Even though I swore I would NEVER be a teacher when I grew up . . . here I am today!  I am blessed and honored that I get to come to work every day and make a difference in the lives of some amazing little people.

My educational background began at Concordia University in Irvine with a B.A. in Liberal Studies, followed by a Masters of Education from National University in 2009.  In 2010 I was recognized as a National Board Certified Teacher - Early Childhood Generalist. Within the Newport Mesa School District I was also recognized as California Elementary Teacher of the Year in 2009.

This year will be my third year teaching at Newport Elementary.  Before I arrived at Newport El I spent four years teaching kindergarten at California Elementary School in Costa Mesa.


When I am not at school teaching, I love spending time at home with my wonderful family!  In August 2011 the newest member of our family arrived - Baby Jack - and he has been keeping his parents VERY busy with all of this exciting adventures ever since! 


Aside from teaching and being with my family, some of my other favorite things are snuggling up with a good book, taking pictures, swimming and drinking lots of coffee!
