I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a degree in Special Education. I started working with Mesa Public school in 1993, teaching Pre-K. While I raised my family, I was a substitute teacher in Mesa Public School for 15 years. As a substitute teacher, I taught students at all age levels and ability levels. I have been working in the SLLD program at Porter since 2011.
A Little Bit about Me
I was born in Nevada but I have also lived in Utah, Nebraska and Denmark. I love to learn about other places and people. We are a multilingual family, I speak Danish and German, one daughter speaks Spanish, another daughter speaks Bulgarian, and our son speaks French.
When Robert and I married in 1988, we moved to Mesa. I love living in Mesa. All of our five children have attended Mesa Public Schools. Our oldest daughter Jessica, graduate from ASU with a degree in Kinesiology, and has begun a post-bach nursing program. Carson is attending community collage and playing Soccer. Kira recently graduated from ASU in Meteorology / Climatology. Ryan attends Red Mountain High School, and Sara will be attending Fremont Jr High.
As a family, when we are not busy with school and work, we love to explore Arizona by camping, boating, and quading. I love to read, research the internet, and do "needle work" .
