My very own children inspired me to help Diamond Valley Elementary. I love to be around and work with children especially those that need extra help. I know when I was a child, I was a slow learner and that is what has inspired me to help and understand where these children are coming from. While I had the privilege of being a stay home mother of two wonderful boys, I decided to help out in their classrooms and stay connected with them, their teachers, and peers. In 2009, I started volunteering at Diamond Valley Elementary in my son's classrooms and helped PTVO until 2015-2016 school year, when  I was elected Treasurer of the PTVO board. Then the following year, I was elected PTVO President and found out that Diamond Valley Elementary had an opening as a Paraprofessional Aide. I was so excited to get hired and started teaching P.E. It has been a great four years and I've had a lot of fun getting to be a part of every student here at Diamond Valley Elementary. My personal interests are of course spending time with my two sons and we love to go camping, hiking, to the ocean and lakes, and I love reading.
