    • About Miss C.

      • I am an Arizona native. I grew up in Chandler and graduated from Hamilton High School. I received an athletic soccer scholarship in college. I graduated from Arizona State University. Go Devils! On my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, home decorating, traveling, all things vintage, drawing, hiking, shopping, going to antique stores, crafting, watching movies, bowling, playing corn hole/bags, attending professional sporting events and cruising in my 1970 Chevelle. 

    • Education

    • Teaching

      • I will encourage your child to be physically active in ways that assist their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development and abilities. I’m looking forward to the school year.

    • Fun Fact

      • My grandpa, Elias "Papa" Contreras, lived to be 103 years old! His mom, my great grandma "Nina Santos", lived to be 101 and her sister, my great aunt "Tia Auerlia," lived to be 102! Nina Santos and Tia Aurelia were the famous "Tamale Ladies of Jerome, AZ!" They would make tamales and walk up and down the steep hills of Jerome selling them to people. They continued doing this through their late 90s! For the longest time they even held the record of being the oldest living residents in Jerome. My grandpa, great grandma and great aunt constantly stayed active by cooking, walking, reading and gardening. They were living proof if you take care of your mind, body, and health that you can live a long happy healthy life.
