Welcome to 5th grade! I look forward to working with you and having fun with our fascinating fifth grade curriculum!

My Education and Professional Background

I began teaching in 1984 and I have been teaching at Basha Elementary since 2018. I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees from A.S.U., followed by 60 additional graduate credits. My Arizona Department of Education endorsements are in the categories of English as a Second Language, Reading, and Provisional Gifted. My teaching experience is in grades 3, 4, 5, 6, and Gifted grades 3-6. Previous to teaching in Chandler, I taught in Mesa Public Schools.

My Educational Philosophy

Challenge children in a caring and creative environment and they will reach their academic potential.
