Greetings, Patterson Parents! 

It is going to be a fabulous fifth grade year! 


A little about me...

I grew up in a suburb of Chicago and moved to Arizona when I was in seventh grade.  After one year in Fountain Hills, my family moved to Mesa, where I attended Mesa Public Schools.  I attended Shepherd Junior High for eighth and ninth grade.  I went to Red Mountain High School and graduated in 1994.  (Go Lions!)

I attended Northern Arizona University for the first three years of college and graduated from Ottawa University with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 1999.  Immediately after finishing my Bachelor's Degree, I began taking classes towards my Master's Degree and graduated in 2002, from Northern Arizona University with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. 

This is my 22nd year of teaching.  I taught first and sixth grade at Kerr Elementary School prior to coming to Patterson.  This is my 18th  year teaching at Patterson.  I taught first grade during my first two years here, third grade during the next two years, first grade for three more years, and fifth grade for the past ten years.  I love teaching at Patterson!

I am married and have two fabulous boys!  We enjoy spending time together outdoors and we love Arizona Cardinals Football!

I look forward to working with each of you this year!
