Teaching is an absolute passion of mine. I am so excited to work with you in first grade this year. It's going to be a year full of fun and learning. I have lived in Arizona all of my life. I'm the youngest of six kids. I've been married to my wonderful husband, David, for almost 20 years. We have a son & daughter that are in high school. We spend a lot of our free time volunteering, doing projects around the house. We also have a cat, Bodie, and four fish aquariums.

My Education and Professional Background

I have a bachelors and masters in elementary education from NAU. I taught grades first through fifth in the Deer Valley & Gilbert school districts for ten years. For the last 16 years I've been a stay at home mom and a substitute teacher in Chandler for 10 years. Now that both of my kids are in high school I'm excited to be teaching again.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that all students can learn and succeed. My job as a teacher is to care for my students and teach them in a way that they can learn best. Students' active roles as learners and thinkers in the classroom helps them enjoy learning and get excited about their education.
