Welcome to 5th Grade at NCSA!

Welcome to the 5th Grade! I am a new teacher here at Nevada City School of the Arts and I am elated to be part of this wonderful learning community. Before arriving here,  I graduated from Sonoma State University, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and I recently graduated from the CalStateTEACH teacher credential program through CSU Fresno. Before pursuing a teaching career, I was employed in various outdoor education, outdoor adventure, summer camp jobs. I find my solace in the outdoors and hope to imbue this passion into this year’s fifth-grade class.


This coming year will be full of fun, growth, and adventure. I hope that, as a class, we grow beyond the person we began as at the beginning of the school year and accomplish that through the adventure of the outdoors, art, music, and our community. I like to think of myself as a fun, goofy, silly, and dorky sort of person. So, my wish is to create a space where everyone feels comfortable to be themselves and safe through positive and engaging experiences.


Look forward to many fun hands-on activities as we deepen our understanding of science, math, social studies, and language arts!



5th Grade is a year of exploration, completion, and transformation.
