Like many Arizonans, I am not originally from here. I was born in Colorado, but have also lived in Wyoming. I earned my BS in Elementary Education and Special Education from Grand Canyon University. I have also earned a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University. I taught three years in the Gilbert School District in an Elementary Special Education program. I then moved to the Chandler Unified District and taught the same thing at Erie Elementary. In 2007 I made the move to Santan Junior High, and I have been here ever since then. I continue to enjoy working with junior high students and look forward to working with your student this year.
