It is with great pleasure to start my twenty first teaching year at Whittier!! I have always enjoyed the children and families at our school. It is with great pleasure to teach first grade at our A+ school.  Most recently I taught kindergarten for nine years, first grade, and a program called 'extension' working with all first and second graders on social studies and science. Before moving to Arizona, I taught six years in Nebraska working with mentally handicapped adults, fourth grade, and resource for learning disabled students.

I graduated from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with majors in Elementary Education K-8 and Special Education, working with Learning Disabled and Mentally Handicapped students, K-12.  My Master's Degree was in Elementary Education with a Reading Endorsement earned from Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff, AZ. Over the years, I have earned an Early Education Endorsement and a Structured English Immersion Endorsement K-12.

Our classroom has an open door policy, so please feel free to stop by the classroom or call and leave a message.   Any questions or concerns are always welcome.
