    Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from
    Arizona State University
    I have been teaching early childhood education for sixteen years mostly here at Shumway!  I received my Early Childhood Bachelors from Arizona State University and started teaching preschool.  I moved up to kindergarten so I could teach the same students all day long.  After five years of Kindergarten, I wanted a new challenge and started teaching first grade, which is where I have been since!  I strive to make learning successful for each child. It is fun to watch the growth the students make in just one year!     
    I live in Chandler with my husband David and our two children.  My oldest, Micah has two children, Roman (6) and Zara (4) and just graduated from ASU with honors.  I am a happy Grammy to babysit her babies!  My Son, Thorin, is taking courses at Chandler Gilbert Community College and is interested in gaming.  He is also a great woods worker and has made many projects for our family.  My husband loves the outdoors, so you can find us four-wheeling, hiking, camping and kayaking across the state.  My main hobby is to relax and read books.  I LOVE to read, read, read, especially suspense mysteries.
