     I am so excited to be joining the Sousa Stars this year! I have been teaching at charter schools in the East Valley for almost nine years. I earned both my bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Phoenix. I live in Apache Junction with my 13 year old daughter. 

     I began my teaching experience at Mesa Arts Academy where I was given a wonderful foundation and a love for teaching second grade. I followed that up with a year teaching 6th grade math and science, which I loved. I was then asked to move to third grade where a spent two more years. Then I made the leap up to fifth grade where I focused mainly on English Language Arts and Science. I am very excited to be with second grade and all subjects again!

     My daughter and I moved around a bit before settling in this very hot, but very beautiful state. Oshyn (ocean) was born in Oregon, and has traveled all over the northwest with me prior to settling here. We love adventuring and visiting the cooler states during our summers off.
