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 5th grade teachers and have many fun things to explore and learn about this year!

      This is my second year at Irving, but I have been In the district for the last 12 years and have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade combination class of English Language Learners, a 1st and 2nd grade combination class, 3rd grade, and most recently 6th grade.  Thiswildcats year, I have the pleasure of teaching 5th grade students again!

     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 received my Masters degree in Educational Leadership and Administration through Grand Canyon University!

    rsMy parents still live in New Hampshire, and I visit them as often as I can.  I have one older brother who lives in California.  I love to visit him and see my niece and nephews!  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.
