A. Aguayo, Spanish
Teaching is my passion. Having the opportunity to teach students and watching them excel academically is my dream. When I'm not teaching, I love being with my family, going on hikes and dancing.

E. Ashleigh, Kindergarten
When I'm not having fun teaching, I love to run, read, dance, paint, and explore outside. One day I hope to illustrate a children's book.


A. Borges, Kindergarten




S. Coventry, Kindergarten
When I am not at school, I am hiking, exercising, reading, or spending quality time with my friends and family!


M. Hadley, 2nd Grade
I have been in the classroom since 1997. When I am not at school, I love to work in my garden, travel, or quilt.


B. Hatten, 2nd Grade
When I'm not at work, I enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and kayaking. Sonoma County is such a beautiful place to spend time outdoors.


K Heien, 1st Grade



L. Keith, 3rd Grade/STEM
I am a Sonoma County native who enjoys exploring our beautiful county with friends and family, through activities like disk golf, hiking, kayaking, camping and running. Outside of teaching, my passion lies in exercise, athletics, gardening and traveling. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to teach here in Healdsburg and help our students grow socially, emotionally and academically everyday! 

J. McCoy Poore, 3rd Grade/ Humanities



H. Noble, Intervention Teacher


D. Nuñez, 5th Grade/STEM
When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids. My kids keep me busy with their 4-H and FFA projects as well as sports. We love camping, fishing, and riding our ATV's.


J. Perry, 1st Grade
My favorite part about teaching is watching students explore, create, inquire and collaborate. Teaching has given me the opportunity to positively change the lives of my students. When I'm not at school, I am spending time with my family, friends and dog. I enjoy camping, hiking and swimming. I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love!


L. Phipps, 5th Grade/Humanities
I have lived in Healdsburg for over 20 years. I have raised my two kids here and love everything this town has to offer, from the many parades to the free music! The FFA fair is my favorite weekend! I love spending as much time as possible in my garden when the weather is nice. If it's too cold, I will spend the day making quilts. 


K. Robinson, 4th Grade/Humanities
Teaching is a big part of my life and where I find my greatest happiness!  When not at school, I enjoy traveling, cooking, sewing, and life with my two rescue kitties Sasha and Sweet Caroline.

M. Alcala, 2nd Grade
I've lived in Healdsburg for about 20 years and my three children have attended HUSD schools. I've been a teacher for HUSD for 17 years. I'm bilingual and love traveling.


A. Beseda, 4th Grade/STEM
I'm a gardener, camper, fisher and hiker. I'm a little bit of ornery mixed with obsessive, but my family has stuck with me so I guess I've "made growth" (however, I'd like to view it as being very passionate about many things). The scariest and most amazing part of teaching is knowing that each of your students is someone's "whole world". They come to us with different personalities and abilities and the only way to do right by our families is to try to help each one of them improve and become their best version of themselves. 

S. Feith, 4th Grade/Humanities




I. Figueroa, 3rd Grade/STEM
The best thing about teaching is being able to make a difference in a child's life. I have the best job in the world.



E. Hanson, RSP Teacher




M. Hernandez, Transitional

I love teaching and seeing children blossom!I have spent the past 21years teaching at HUSD. I enjoy reading new books, hiking and going on adventures. When I am not teaching, you will see me walking around Cloverdale or drinking coffee with my husband.

A. Lyon, 5th Grade





D. McCormick, RSP Teacher
Since moving to Healdsburg from
Ohio in 2011, I enjoy the beautiful surroundings every day and like being active in the community. The things I love most about teaching are challenging my students to do their best, helping to build their confidence, and watching them grow as individuals.

A. Pacheco, 1st Grade
I love encouraging students to be life long learners. It's important for me to nurture independence and confidence in all my students.


C. Petereit, 2nd Grade
I love spending time outdoors - running, working in my garden, and taking hikes.
I have always been fortunate to have a job that I love doing. Time outside and time with kids is a perfect combination.


E. Peterson, Kindergarten
Teaching has always been my passion! I am inspired by Dr. Seuss, I enjoy photography, and I love soaking up some sunshine in the beautiful outdoors!

L. Pillinini, 5th Grade/STEM
When I am not at HES, I enjoy being with my family and my pets. We love to camp, ski, and go out to dinner together. My favorite part of the evening is sitting in the hot tub and listening to my
family's stories.


J. Pruitt, 1st Grade



L. Rose, 3rd-5th Grade Spanish
I am thrilled to be part of the FMC team! I believe language is the key to unlocking understanding of other cultures and highly value being bilingual. I bring this passion to my teaching, encouraging my students to strive towards bilingualism. In my free time I love to hike, camp, and enjoy nature with my yellow lab, as well as spend time with my family and friends

K. Wong, 4th Grade
I enjoy teaching students to read and become lifelong learners.  When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my two sons and husband. I love gardening, hiking, being outdoors and coaching swimming.
