Hello families. I would like to introduce myself as your child’s 2nd grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This is my second year at Red Mountain Ranch Elementary. In the eight years that I have been teaching, I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade. This is my fourth year teaching 2nd grade.

In 1997, I left the cold weather in Michigan and headed for sunny Arizona. I graduated from Highland High School in 2004. I have a BA in Early Childhood Education from Arizona State University. Go, Devils!

When I am not at the Ranch, I am at home with my husband, son, and daughter. I love spending time with my family, attending Diamondback games, cheering for the Denver Broncos, watching movies, and camping up north. 

I am excited to be your child’s teacher.  I am looking forward to a thrilling adventure in 2nd grade!
