Hello and welcome to 4th grade! I'm very excited to be a Gator this year and be back in Arizona where I began my teaching career. I look forward to a year full of growth, achievement, and fun with the amazing students at CTA Goodman. My husband and I are both teachers and we have two children, both of whom are thrilled to be going to school in Chandler again. It’s going to be a fabulous year!

My Education and Professional Background

I have a B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Kansas and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Kansas as well as a M.Ed. Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. I was fortunate to begin my teaching career with CUSD at San Marcos Elementary, where I spent 5 years teaching grades 4 and 5. In 2011, my husband and I decided to go on an adventure with our children, so we moved to the United Arab Emirates. I taught grades 1, 2, and 3 to Emirati students for 5 years in public schools in Abu Dhabi. In 2016, we moved to Dubai, and I’ve spent the last 3 years teaching grades 2 and 4 at a private American curriculum school.
