A Little About Me

While I was born in Denver, Colorado I have spent almost my whole life living in Arizona. I have grown up and gone to school close to Summit since I was in fourth grade.

Teaching is my love and passion. I graduated from ASU in the fall of 2007 with my degree in Early Childhood Education. In May 2012, I graduated from ASU with my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Language and Literacy.

The year 2016 was a big year for me. I had a beautiful baby boy named Paul and got married to my husband Ryan. We live in Chandler with our other fur baby, Moose.

I will be starting into my tenth year of teaching at Summit Academy. I spent four years in third grade and five years in fourth grade. Summit Academy has a lot to offer and I love being a part of another amazing school year.
