I am an Arizona native and a product of Mesa Public Schools, graduating from Dobson High School in 2003. I attended Arizona State University, where I earned my B.A. in Elementary Education, B.S. in Family and Human Development, and minor in Psychology in 2008. While teaching, I worked hard to earn my M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education and Reading Endorsement from Northern Arizona University.

This is my thirteenth year teaching with MPS and my tenth year at Ishikawa Elementary. I am excited to be teaching second grade at Ishikawa again this year. I absolutely love teaching children and seeing light bulbs go off as they grasp concepts. Teaching is something I see myself doing for as long as possible.

In what little spare time I have, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, shopping, dancing, traveling, and just relaxing.

I look forward to working with you and your children this year!
