About the Teacher
The Carroll family at Denali Base Camp
It’s amazing to be starting another year at Redwood Prep! When I think back on where we started 9 years ago and what we have accomplished through all of our love, sweat and tears, I am beyond proud and grateful to be a part of the Redwood Prep family. I teach 1st grade and am also the athletic director… Go Timberwolves! I have been teaching for over 20 years and am thankful every day that I get to work at a school filled with staff, students and families that I love and who inspire me to be the best educator possible. I grew up in Arnold, a small town in the mountains outside of Sacramento. I moved to Humboldt County to play basketball and study at Humboldt State University. I graduated from HSU with a degree in liberal studies and Spanish and then received teaching credentials from Sac State (multiple subjects) and HSU (special education).
My family and I live in Fortuna. My husband Chris is a forester and we have two daughters, Kate and Charlotte. Kate and Charlotte started Redwood Prep as 4th and 5th graders when Redwood Prep opened in 2011. They are now a senior and junior at Fortuna High. They are very active in sports and other activities which keep us very busy. My family and I enjoy spending time together camping, snowboarding/skiing, sports and travel.
