    Welcome to First Grade! I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Many exciting learning experiences await your first grader! My husband, David, and I live in Chandler. We have two sons who are both ASU alumni – Go Sun Devils! Our oldest son, Zach, is a photographer currently traveling abroad. Our youngest son, Jared, began his career with the Frito-Lay Corporation after college graduation. Both of my children attended Ryan Elementary since its opening, so I am truly a Ryan Royal at heart! My husband and I were both born and raised in Arizona and enjoy all that it has to offer. During our free time, we love to do anything outdoors to soak up all the beauty Arizona has to offer!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I am an Arizona State University alumni where I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  I am excited to start my 17th year here at Ryan Elementary.  This will be my 16th year teaching first grade at Ryan.

    My Educational Philosophy

    My goal as a teacher is to inspire and educate children to be enthusiastic about learning. I enjoy watching each and every child develop a love for reading. Within our classroom, I will foster a loving learning environment where we will build our own community based off of respect, kindness, and integrity. I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year with all of you. Welcome to the Fabulous First Grade at Ryan Elementary!
