Meet Your Teacher

This is my 16th year teaching & 15th year teaching 1st grade at Mendoza!  I enjoy working with younger children, and being involved in their reading process.  It is a joy to see a child learn new words and begin to read!  

I have two amazing kids!  Braelyn is 10 years old & Easton is 7. They both go to school at Mendoza. My kids are the joys of my life....they keep me busy & I love it! 

I am originally from North Dakota where I obtained my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten Endorsement.  I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education with a Reading Endorsement from Northern Arizona University.  I also obtained my ESL Endorsement.  It was a great experience and I enjoy getting to use the knowledge I gained with my first grade students!  

In my free time, I enjoy being with my family and friends. We love to do many active things, as well as, relax and hang out! My favorite things are to drink Starbucks, exercise, read, Netflix & Chill, and shop on Amazon! 

I am excited for a fun-filled year with lots of learning & growing!
