I consider myself a native Arizonan having lived here since I was 2. I was raised in Mesa Public Schools and graduated from Westwood High School. I am a home body so I stayed at home while attending Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in early childhood education. I started my career at a private preschool teaching 3 year olds, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten. In 2007 I made the choice to become a part of the public school system when Highland became my new home. I began in kindergarten, made a quick visit to third grade, and then returned to kindergarten, which I love!
I am the proud mother of two children, Max and Miley. My son is attending Westwood High School's IB Program as a Freshman and Miley is a 5th grader here at Highland. I am a proud soccer mom, and I love watching my Miley at gymnastics. When we are not at a soccer tournament we are hanging out together as a family.
I am looking forward to the upcoming school year and meeting you and your child!
