Hi and welcome to the Taylor Junior High website! 

I have been a teacher for 24 years. For four years, I taught in New Jersey.
I relocated to Arizona and have been teaching here ever since. I LOVE
working with children. I am very excited to come to school each and every day
of the year! Books inspire me and words live within me. Teaching reading and writing
is a gift. I'm very grateful for it.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology. I continued my education at ASU West where I obtained my Master's Degree in Elementary Education.

I LOVE to read, crochet and spend time with my two dogs. I am the proud aunt of twin nieces who live in California. If I am not at school, you can find me at a book store or a coffee shop reading a book or crocheting. 

I LOVE Taylor Junior High!
