Welcome to Room 10! I am so excited to begin a new year with new friends in KINDERGARTEN! Change is good and I am looking forward to grand adventures in a new grade with a great team of teachers. This will be my eleventh year of teaching (ten of which were spent in first grade). I hold a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State, as well as a Master's degree in Language and Literacy. Zaharis is my home away from home, and not only do I have the privilege to work here, but I get to experience all that it has to offer from a parent's perspective. My daughter, Kayla, will be in first grade this year and I know that she is at the BEST school in all the land, with an incredibly gifted teacher.
I was born in Pennsylvania and moved to Arizona when I was ten. I grew up in Chandler, but now reside in Gilbert with my high school sweetheart, Brian. We have two beautiful children, Kayla and Connor, a fun-loving three year old. We also have a lovable Rottweiler, named Roxi. I enjoy traveling, relaxing on the beach, reading, cooking, watching football (GO EAGLES!) and of course, teaching children!
I have a divine love for reading and it fills me with great joy when I get to share that love. Some of the best parts of teaching are watching my young friends identify themselves as readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists. I strive to build the foundations which enable my students to become lifelong learners and compassionate members of society. I am so looking forward to brand new adventures and new learning among life's youngest treasures...your children!
