I was born in Arizona, am married, have a son who attends NAU and a daughter who attended Jacobson, and Bogle Jr. High. My daughter is currently attending Hamilton High School. CUSD has given my two children all they need to succeed and I am proud beyond measure to work for the greatest school district in Arizona. My two dogs, Rocky and Daisy spend most of their time sleeping on the couch.

My Education and Professional Background

I have been teaching in the Chandler Unified School District since 2006. I have taught Kindergarten, First, Second and Third Grades during this time. Altogether, I have spent 10 years teaching second grade and I enjoy working with this bright, happy age group. I look forward to working with third graders this school year. I graduated from ASU in 1989 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. In 2010, I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction through NAU, and I am currently working to receive a full gifted endorsement.

My Educational Philosophy

I look forward to challenging each student to try new things, think in new ways and to honor the unique gifts each student brings to our learning space. I am very excited to be a part of the unique and exciting things happening at Knox Gifted Academy this school year.
