Hello and welcome!!! I am so excited for this school year! I've been teaching kindergarten at Zaharis for 11 years and it is a very special place. I love being a part of this great community. I grew up in Minnesota and moved out to Arizona over 25 years ago. I have taught in MPS for 22 years and absolutely love it! I have spent most of those years teaching kindergarten along with a few years teaching first grade. I love these early years and the opportunity to be a part of each child's first introduction to school. I truly treasure each day I have with the children placed in my care. Their excitement about learning is contagious!

My husband, Alex and I have been married for 27 years and our son, Caillou, is a senior at Skyline High School.  How quickly time flies. It seems just like yesterday he was starting kindergarten. As a family we love spending time traveling, going walking at Boyce Thompson Arboretum and Usery Pass, swimming, and going to the movies.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your wonderful family this year. It'll be a magical year!
