Hello! This is my 7th year teaching at NP3 Middle School. I was living and teaching in Orange County, California prior to relocating. This is my 19th year teaching. My last name is pronounced (oon-gow) just in case you needed a little help. I am looking forward to my 7th year here at NP3 with all of you!
My new office hours are: M-F 8-3PM. Please email me any questions about the assignments or concerns.
Special Interests: I love animals! I enjoy observing them in their natural habitats as well as having pets as companions. I like hiking, fishing, camping, and most anything outdoors. I love relaxing with my family. Hanging out with family and friends is always wonderful and full of laughs.
Why I love Teaching: Working with students is my number one reason for teaching. I get a rush as I watch a student master a new concept or come up with an innovative idea. There's no better sound than that "Aha!" moment in class. In that moment, a student's knowledge just expanded by sharing some of my own. In addition, if a student has a setback, I view these situations as challenges, which makes me work harder. The result is very rewarding for the student and myself.
