Welcome to kindergarten! Wonderful things are happening here! The students at Highland have the unique opportunity to learn about the arts, and experience watching in, and participating in a performances. This last year we went on four fieldtrips, including the Musical Instrument Museum, as well as a fieldtrip to Mesa Arts Center to watch a performance of "Peter Rabbit". We have also had a guest artist come and teach us about still life painting.
I am originally from Falls Church, Virginia, a beautiful place just outside Washington D.C. I attended University of Arizona where I received a degree in Elementary Education. Since then I have received endorsements in SEI, and Early Child Education. I have been teaching for over 20 years, (how is that even possible?), and love working with children! I have taught kindergarten, first, third and fourth grades.
I am married to a great guy, Dan, and have three wonderful children, Ryan, Becca, and Chris. I am also the a grandmother to five little loves who all live in Dallas.
I am excited for another new year at Highland Arts Elementary!
