Welcome! Thank you so much for visiting my website! I am really looking forward to a great year with our students!

My Education and Professional Background

I was born and raised in Chandler, Arizona. I attended all CUSD schools from K-12th Grade. I am so glad I am able to continue being in Chandler schools now as a teacher. I am a first year teacher this 2022-2023 school year. I graduated in December 2021 from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English Language Immersion. I did my student teaching at Galveston last year and was a long term sub here after that. I love working at Galveston and am so excited for this school year!

Playing in band develops self-confidence, responsibility, and requires the students to work cooperatively as a team. We give concerts during the school year and also play at flag raising assemblies.
