I was born in Visalia, California, and grew up in Dinuba not far from Lincoln School. I have lived here all of my life!
I attended Lincoln Elementary, Wahington Intermediate School, and graduated from Dinuba High School in 1999.
I sang in choir in Jr High and discovered I love it! I continued singing in the Concert Choir and Madrigals in high school and had a blast! I also played football, baseball, and my favorite, basketball.
I married my high school sweetheart, Melissa Vega, who is a Learning Director at Kennedy Elementary here in Dinuba. We have 4 awesome children. Owen Christopher is the oldest, followed by Sarah Juliet, my mini-me Benson Drew, and finally Bruin Russell.
I have 1 sister, April, and 1 brother, Chris. I am 2nd oldest. I also have 7 wonderful nieces and nephews.
I love anything with chocolate!!! One of my favorite desserts is the Smores Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. I absolutely love to read! Some of my favorites include Harry Potter, Kingdom Keepers, The Hobbit, and The Chronicles of Narnia.
I LOVE TEACHING!!!
