Welcome to 3rd Grade!
I am so excited to continue another year teaching 3rd Grade at Highland Arts Elementary! I spent two years teaching 4th Grade in Peoria, Arizona, and this will be my second year teaching 3rd Grade here in Mesa. In 2015, I graduated cum laude from Brigham Young University-Idaho, with a degree in Elementary Education and immediately got to work!
I grew up in Sacramento, California and still love to fly off to my hometown to see family when I can. Growing up, my siblings and I were our own version of the Von Trapp Family. We each played an instrument and often performed together. My instrument of choice was the harp, and still is. When I wasn't practicing, I could often be seen sketching portraits or singing my favorite songs over again until begged to stop. These habits have remained unbroken, so as you can imagine, when I found Highland Arts, I found home. Shortly after starting work here at Highland, I married my wonderful husband in December of 2017. Together, we enjoy trying new restaurants, going to the lake, driving up north, and playing with our little dog, Brinkley.
In my classroom, I have the highest hopes that students will see the beauty in learning, be quizzical and thoughtful, and leave every day with a true sense of self-worth and accomplishment. I look forward to a wonderful year in 3rd Grade!
