Not gonna lie – when asked to be the president I was a little intimidated. But man – I’m having so much fun. I LOVE Literacy First in all it’s best and quirks and I ADORE the people I get to work along side of to enhance our kids school experience, support the teachers and the school. I have 3 kiddos here; one and the PA and two at the JA. I’m constantly amazing at the love and support they get from the staff which make serving on the board SUCH a joy. Wanna dip your toes in the volunteer pool? Ask me how!

This will be my fourth year on the PTLC board. I have a daughter who is in the 4th grade at the Junior Academy and a son who is in the first grade at the Primary Academy. I also have a little one at home who will be in Kindergarten next year and is so excited to finally be joining the Literacy First family. Since my daughter has been a student at Literacy First, I have been a room parent, and the team leader for both the Father Daughter Dance and the Holiday Store. I have also helped out with many school events such as the mileage club, Library, snack sales, and many other PTLC and school events. I joined the PTLC in order to become more involved with school activities and with the education of my children. I’m very excited to be serving another year as the PTLC treasurer!

It is a pleasure to serve as a 2nd-year board member. My Natalie is a 3rd grader and Wyatt is in kinder; both at PA. I believe that if you can serve and give you should; especially when you have the opportunity to make a positive impact in a child’s life. I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute to our wonderful school, to shower our teachers with appreciation, and give our kids plenty of fun opportunities to make lasting memories. As a parent, it is my ultimate goal for all of our children to LOVE the school they grow up in. I enjoy cooking, pinning home improvement & craft projects, and exploring San Diego and beyond with my family & friends!

I have two boys, one who is in 6th grade at the JA, and one who is in 2nd at the PA.  I work part time at our church, and am thankful for the opportunities that I have to help those around me.  This is my fifth year coordinating the uniform exchanges.  I love seeing families come to the exchanges and go away having saved money and still found uniform clothes for their kids.  I volunteer in my son’s classes, and plan to continue doing that for as long as I can.  I am thankful to be able to do my part to help make LFCS a wonderful place for our students and families.
