Welcome 6th Grade Mustangs!                                                 

 While I've had the privilege of being a Madison Mustang for the last 20 years. I'm looking forward to a great year with these amazing students!

I'm a native to Arizona and grew up right here in the Mesa area. I'm a product of Mesa Public Schools and graduated from Dobson High School. I decided to get out of the heat and move to the pine country of Flagstaff to get my Elementary Education degree at Northern Arizona University.  I also earned my Master's Degree in Education from NAU.  My first teaching job came on the Gila River Indian Reservation, where I taught 4th grade for 2 years in Sacaton. I then moved to Madison Elementary, and have been here ever since! In my spare time, I run 5K road races. 

My family plays a very important part in my life.  I met my husband, Bill, while going to college at NAU and we have been married for 23 years. Our daughter, Katie, is a junior this year at the Arizona State University. We love traveling around Arizona and learning the history of this great state. 

The students in my class quickly become part of my family. As a family, we will work hard to help and support each other this year. Since family is always welcome, please feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you for the privilege of working with your child this year!
