Welcome to Jefferson Elementary! I look forward to working with your child this year and the amazing things we will discover and learn. My hope is that all my students have a positive experience in the classroom and develop into critical thinkers, fully engaged in the learning process.

I have taught several grades during my eighteen years of teaching in Mesa, and I feel these experiences have helped me connect and understand my students needs on a daily basis.

I  received my undergraduate degree in history from Arizona State University. I also received Masters degrees from Northern Arizona University in elementary education and counseling. In 2009 I completed course work and obtained a reading endorsement from the Department of Education.  My hope is to use these educational experiences to better serve our school community.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding classwork, homework, or any issue regarding your child please feel free to call my classroom at 472-8675.

Thanks again for your support and I look forward to seeing you and your child during the school year!
