I have been teaching for 23 years, mostly in fourth grade. Currently, I am the team leader and head of the service learning committee. I am also a part of the after school tutoring program and on the yearbook committee. I have a bachelors in English, a post-bac in Elementary Education, a masters in Elementary Education, and my ELL, reading, and math endorsement. I have lived in Arizona most of my life, but I spent a short time in Los Angeles and Portland. My favorite pastimes include reading, yoga, listening to music, and travelling.
I love teaching history and social studies as there are so many exciting things to learn about our great state. I also enjoy doing service learning projects that tie in with our curriculum. I look forward to a great year working with my students and parents to create a successful year.
