I was born in Toronto, Canada, and became a citizen of the United States in 2003. After a ten-year career in television production and a year as the assistant production manager for a book publisher in Canada, I decided to follow my dream of becoming a teacher. I received my BA in English literature and my elementary teaching credential from California State University, Northridge, and I have been teaching in Arizona since 1995. I have certificate endorsements in Structured English Immersion and Reading.
This is my twenty-third year with Mesa Public Schools, and my third in 5th grade. Previously, I taught 6th grade for four years, 4th grade for twelve years, and 3rd grade for four years. The children in my classroom family learn the academics, along with an emphasis on accepting responsibility, using respectful manners, and practicing tolerance.
I have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, a dog named Charlie, a cat named Peter, and a betta fish named Finley. My favorite hobbies are reading and writing.
