All About Me
     Welcome to Willis!  I've been at Willis since 2008.  It seems like just yesterday I arrived here from teaching in a small school district south of here, Stanfield.   
         I have lived in Arizona since 1994.  I moved here from a small town in the Midwest, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.  Growing up in a small town was a wonderful experience, but by thMU-smalle time college came around, I decided I wanted to try a "big" city.  My family helped me pack up my "stuff" and off we drove to the big town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Marquette University is where I received my bachelor's degree. 
         I come from a family of teachers. My grandmother started her teaching career in a one-room school house in rural Iowa.  My mother taught a variety of ages throughout her career in both the Midwest and Arizona before retiring.  WheIWC - smalln I completed my bachelor's degree, I decided that I really wanted to teach.  So, I headed back to my hometown to move back in with my parents so I could attend Iowa Wesleyan College to earn my teaching certificate. 
         In 2002, I received my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction - English as a Second Language from Arizona State University. 
         I am looking forward to working with the students this
