Welcome to our class! I am very excited to be working with a wonderful group of students this year. I look forward to getting to know you all! We have a great team of 6th grade teachers and have many fun things to explore and learn about this year!
I have been here at Hawthorne for the last 9 years and have taught 2nd grade, a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade combination class of English Language Learners, a 1st and 2nd grade combination class, and most recently 3rd grade for the last three years. Before coming to Hawthorne, I taught first grade at another Mesa school. This year, I have the pleasure of teaching 6th grade students for the first time!
I moved to the west in 2001 and began college at the University of Arizona. I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education from the UofA in 2005. Since then, I have continued to take college courses in order to get an ELL endorsement as well as a reading endorsement. I just finished my Masters degree in Educational Leadership and Administration through Grand Canyon University!
My parents still live in New Hampshire, and I visit them as often as I can. I have one older brother who lives in Yorba Linda, California. I love to visit him and see my niece! When we are all together, we love to cheer on our favorite New England sports teams. I also enjoy traveling to new places with my family, my husband, and friends.
