I am very excited to welcome you and your child to Kindergarten here at Brinton. This will be my eighth year teaching here. I look forward to working together with you to educate your child.
I grew up in Mesa and am glad to be back “home”. My family moved here for the heat from Saskatchewan, Canada and our first year here I was enrolled in first grade at Hawthorne Elementary. Next, I attended Poston Jr. High, then Mountain View High School. After I graduated from ASU, I married my college sweetheart, then was hired for my first teaching position in central Phoenix.
We have three beautiful, successful adult children.
I taught for 5 years in Phoenix, took a few years away from teaching and lived abroad, in Turkey. When we returned to Arizona, I worked in Gilbert for four years before coming back to Mesa.
I love to teach and these little ones are the most delightful to watch as they grow and learn. I hope this year will be full of joys and great memories for all of us.
