Biography

       I have always loved teaching and I have served in many different positions throughout the years. This is my thirteenth year as a professional educator.  I started my career in Florida, and shortly after I moved to Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where I taught Kindergarten and pre-Kinder.  That experience shaped my life in monumental ways.  I grew to appreciate the Hispanic culture and their quality of life. After 2 years in Honduras, I returned to my home state, North Carolina, where I received a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and a K-12 ESL endorsement.  For five years, I worked in Sampson County Schools as a Migrant Education Resource Teacher. 

       Utimately, I landed in Mesa, Arizona, where I now live with my husband and two children.  I was a stay-at-home mom for nine years before I returned to public education.  It is my pleasure to be a part of the Mesa Public Schools, and especially, Irving Elementary. This year, I begin a new position as a second grade  teacher.
