 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 at Fortuna High and a freshman in college.  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.
