Meadow Heights has been my home for the past 18 years.. In total I have taught 26 years. My range of teaching experiences have varied from teaching 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade at MH to teaching Language Arts in a middle school. Lastly, I also taught English abroad for a few years. I have a Masters degree in Education from the University of San Francisco. I have two children, my son Kentaro, who is a Freshman in college and a daughter, Hana, who is a sophomore in high school. I am very proud of them and they are trilingual as I am. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, reading, playing the piano, and gardening among many other things.
