Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 school year!  I look forward to meeting new friends and teaching young minds about the world they live in! 



I am the oldest child in a family with 6 kids.  I joined the United States Army right out of high school and served for 5 years before moving on to other paths that life offered.

I attended Mesa Community College, and transferred to Arizona State University where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in the College of Education's Multi-Lingual/Multi-Cultural program.

I started teaching in 2009 as a member of the Mesa Public Schools Professional Development Cadre, and in 2010 I joined the staff at Longfellow Elementary as a member of the 4th grade.

I incorporate technology, inquiry, and investigation into my teaching methods as I believe that these will help our students become familiar with the tools they will need to be successful in their continuing education and their lives.
