Experience: I have been working with young children for 37 years in preschools, daycare and home centers. 


Education:  I received my Childhood Development Teacher Permit (Preschool teacher credential) from the State of California in 2006 and my Director’s Certificate in 2007.

I do so love spending my days in the preschool world where learning is fun and exciting. Our days are joyful, busy, and there is always something new happening.

I believe God called me here to Oroville Christian Preschool. There is a wonderful story of how He brought me here.  I’m happy to share it, if you ask me.

Favorite Verse: Psalm 139:1-5  "Lord, you have examined me and know me. You know everything I do; from far away you understand all my thoughts. You see me, whether I am working or resting; you know my actions.  Even before I speak, you already know what I will say.  You are all around me on every side; you protect me with your power."
