Welcome to 1st grade in room 608!

I am so excited for my second year of teaching at Whittier Elementary School.   We are going to do so many fun things and of course we will learn a lot.

I earned my Bachelors Degree at the University of Phoenix.  I have also previously worked as a clerical aide and a classroom aide in the Mesa School District. 

A few fun facts about me…

I am an Arizona native, raised in Safford and moved to Mesa 13 years ago.  I am happily married to my husband Edward and we have six children, three girls and three boys, ranging in age from 8 to 18 years old.  In our free time we love cheering on the Arizona Cardinals, camping, fishing, and hunting.   Some of my favorite things are coffee, chocolate and rainy days.


I can’t wait to get to know your child this year!


The homework expectation for first grade is that homework should last 15-20 minutes each night.  If you need additional help with homework click on the link.
