Carol was born and raised in the Bay Area. She feels teaching is a calling and desires to empower children and their parents with education. She has been teaching for over twenty years in both Christian and public schools, and her teaching experiences range from kindergarten to fourth grade. She enjoys teaching in Christian schools because she can share her faith and be a part of a loving, supportive community. She earned a BA in Liberal Studies with a minor in Linguistics and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from San Jose State University. One of her life verses is Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." When not teaching, she spends her time with her husband and teenage daughter hiking, exploring coastal beaches, and walking their dog.
