About Me

I live in Mesa, AZ and absolutely love it!  I moved out here to go to ASU and when I graduated I returned to my hometown.  I taught there for 2 years and then we missed Arizona so much, my husband and I decided to come back.  We are so glad we did!  We have 2 wonderful boys, Zachary and Tyler!  We also have a rambunctious boxer puppy, Bentley, that keeps us on our toes. We enjoy being outdoors and during the hot summer, we are either in our pool, on the lake or spending time with all of our family.

 This is my 17th year of teaching and my 14th year at Patterson.  I love teaching 4th grade!  We have such an awesome curriculum.  In 4th Grade, we get to study all about our wonderful state of Arizona.  We read great literature and tackle new math skills as well.  I look forward to a great year to come!
