"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." 

                                                                  -William Butler Yeats

       I grew up in Tennessee, but was drawn to the desert!  So I moved to Phoenix several years ago.  I am delighted to be teaching Early Childhood Special Education in Mesa for my sixth year.   Preschool is a positive and creative place where learning creates a fresh "spark" in the children each and every day.

     I began teaching 20 years ago after graduating from Baylor University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary and Special Education.   I continued my training at the University of Memphis with a master's degree in Special Education and Preschool.

     Because all teachers know that education never ends,  I continue to seek to improve my teaching practice and learn new instructional strategies that will help my students reach their potential.  In November 2008, I achieved certification from the  National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

     It is my privilege to work with your child and I look forward to working with you!
