My Education and Professional Background
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl. Growing up and attending Chandler Schools (Santan and Basha) made me eager to provide students with the same wonderful opportunities and experiences I had in Chandler Schools. I graduated from Mary Lou Fulton at Arizona State University in 2014. Go Sun Devils! I have taught fifth grade and fourth grade! I have worked in CTA classrooms from the start. I have been involved in a number of extra-curricular committees and teams such as: Student Council, Leadership Team, Water/Field Day, and Science Fair.
