I am very fortunate to have had the job of creating a program for students who are struggling in school. The RISE program has had many successes over the last 10 years and we continue to strive to help those kids who need a more structured environment.

I attended Arizona State University and graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor's Degree in Special Education with Endorsements in LD, MR and ED. I also attended Northern Arizona University and earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education in 2001. I also have an ESL Endorsement, and  continue to go to school to enhance my teaching abilitites.

I have worked in the Mesa Public School District since 1989. I have enjoyed working in the GUS Program at Madison Elementary, Lindbergh Elementary, and Taft Elementary. In 2006 I was asked to create the RISE Program at Brimhall Junior High. After 6 successful years at Brimhall we moved to Poston Junior High where we continue to work with students be successful in school and in their future endeavors.

I believe that all kids can learn and should have every opportunity to be successful.
