I have had the honor of teaching close to 400 First Grade students over the past 17 years. I started my “adventure” at Lowell Elementary where I taught in an ESL classroom. After 3 years I moved to Emerson and have taught both in the ESL and traditional classrooms. I get so much joy when working with First Graders and feel so lucky to witness their academic and social growth.
An Arizona native, I have lived in Mesa all my life. I am proud to be a Jackrabbit (Mesa High), Sun Devil (ASU), Warrior (Westwood High--my 2 sons converted me), Lumberjack (NAU), Roadrunner (Lowell), and now an Emerson EAGLE!
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University—Fear the Fork! I earned my Master’s Degree in Multi-Culture Education from Northern Arizona University. I have endorsements in both English as a Second Language (ESL) and in Early Childhood Education.
