I am a 1992 graduate of Arizona State University with a degree in elementary education. I hold both elementary and secondary education teaching certificates with early childhood, SEI, K-12 gifted education, and K-8 Mathematics endorsements. I meet the state's requirements for highly qualified professionals. I continue to attend district offered professional development opportunities on a regular basis as my commitment to life long learning. I finished my masters degree program in Mathematics Education in 2013, earning Summa Cum Laude recognition. This year begins my 12th year with Mesa Public Schools.
I have taught MA10 for the past 7 years both at the Jr. High level as well as to 6th graders at Mesa Academy. This will be my third year with the Virtual Academy.
