I have been teaching for 21 years. I have taught 3rd grade for 5 years and 2nd grade for 10 years. I spent 2 years teaching a 3rd/4th combo class and one year as an ELD Pull-out teacher. This is my 4th year teaching 6th. I have 2 boys, ages 12 and 17. I am originally from Chicago, Illinois, but have lived in AZ for more than 30 years. I love to roller blade, go camping and collect anything to do with raccoons!
