My prior experience includes 8 years teaching Kindergarten in an Elementary School setting and 1 year teaching Adult Family Literacy. I taught Kindergarten at Maricopa Unified School District and Kyrene School District. I also taught Adult Family Literacy classes at Adams Elementary in the Mesa Public School District.
I have been married to my husband Henry for 27 years.
I have 2 daughters. Bianca that is 22 years old and a student at ASU. She loves film/theater and wants to be an actress/film director. Mia is 13 years old and a 8th grader at Akimel A-al Middle School in the Kyrene School District, and she loves swimming/swim team. I have a maltese dog named Mimi, she is 6 years old.
I enjoy teaching and I look forward to a fun and exciting year here at Carson Junior High.
