    Welcome to Santan Junior High. I am so proud to be part of CUSD. I was born in Phoenix, but lived near Philadelphia, PA most of my childhood. I moved to Arizona when I was in seventh grade and have lived here since. I now live in Chandler with my husband Rob, a math teacher at ACP High School, my son Jude who is a sophomore at ACP High School, my daughter, Quinn, who is in 7th grade at Santan Junior High, and my kitties, Sunny and Luna. I graduated from ASU and love the Beatles. I enjoy traveling, the outdoors, being creative, and spending time with my family.
