I was born and raised in Page, AZ. (a small town in Northern Arizona). I received my Bachelor's Degree from Northern Arizona University and my Master's Degree from University of Phoenix. I have my SEI endorsement and am also highly qualified to teach junior high mathematics.
This is my 23nd year teaching. I have taught 7th and 8th grade language arts and gifted at Tolleson Jr. High, 5th grade at Tolleson Elementary, 6th grade at Jordan Elementary, 2nd and 3rd grade reading at Hermosa Vista, 4th grade and 5th grade at Falcon Hill, 7th grade math at Rhodes Jr. High, and now 7th grade math at Stapley Jr. High. I love to teach and I strive everyday to get that "aha" moment that lights up a student's eyes!
I am married to Rod Larkins, who is a music and band teacher at Hermosa Vista in Mesa, and I have 3 boys - Brennen, David, and Matthew. We live in Gilbert and are very active in music. My husband and I are also professional musicians - which keeps us busy on some nights and weekends. We have a dog named Roxy and a cat named Willow.
