Dear Parents and Third Grade Student,

Welcome to 3rd Grade! This year is going to be full of many exciting experiences and many new friends for us all! I am so excited to get to know you and be your third grade teacher!

Many of you might be curious about me because this is my 2nd year at CTA Freedom. This is my 9th year teaching elementary school. My family and I recently moved to the valley from Reno Nevada. I grew up in the little town of Holbrook in Northern Arizona. I have 2 wonderful boys at home. Jake is 15 and will be a sophomore at Perry HS and Austin is 13 and will be in 8th grade at Payne this year. They definitely me and my husband BUSY! Our oldest Danielle is married and had a darling baby boy, Mason, in December. Chad is 26 and works as a distribution supervisor. They both live in Gilbert.

Teaching is a 2nd career for me. I earned a degree in Health Education from BYU. Shortly after graduation, I moved to Reno to work for NV Energy for almost 15 years. I wanted to spend more time with my young boys so that meant going back to graduate school. I earned my teaching certification along with a Master’s Degree in Education. Teaching has been an amazing experience and I love to see the growth in my student’s every year.

       I can’t tell you how excited I am to by your child's 3rd grade teacher! Please feel free to contact me through school email ( or through school voice mail at 480-224-2624. I look forward to working with both parents and students to make this an amazing year!
