Welcome to Preschool
This is a wonderful time in your child's life and I am so honored to be a part of this truly amazing time! I have taught for over 23 years and Johnson Elementary is an amazing school that I know you and your child will love as much as I do!
I am a native Montanan and graduated from Montana State University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I loved being a teacher so much I wanted to learn innovative ways to teach children, so I obtained a Master of Arts in Teaching from Grand Canyon University. I have a Special Education Early Childhood Endorsement, Reading Endorsement, as well as English as a Second Language Endorsement. My teaching experience encompasses Preschool, Kindergarten, Pre-First, and Reading Intervention (first through sixth grade). My love and passion is literacy and phonemic awareness. Nothing is more thrilling than witnessing children develop skills in reading and language and I look forward to sharing my passions with your child.
On a personal note, I have been married for over 26 years and we have two boys that currently attend schools within Mesa Public School District. As a family we like to visit museums, the zoo, take nature walks, and bird watching. I also enjoy a good book and a good movie.
