Office Hours, 7:45am-3:45pm
I am honored to be part of the East Valley Academy & Crossroads team!
I received both my undergraduate degree in Psychology and my Masters of
Social Work degree from Arizona State University. I spent over 10 years in
the child welfare and protection field and am committed to the safety and
well-being of youth. I am originally from a small town in New Mexico but
moved to Arizona during my teen years so this is home. In my free time, I
enjoy spending time with my family and friends including my two young
nephews, watching the NFL (go Cowboys!), and going to country concerts.
My goal is to connect students and their families with resources and be a
source of support for any life events. I help students with coping skills,
tough choices, and working through/ identifying emotions and feelings to
ensure a successful school experience.
Pawsitive Peers Foundation school dog program
Mesa Public Schools is piloting the Pawsitive Peers Foundation school dog program developed by North Shore Animal League America using the Mutt-i-grees® curriculum. The district has partnered with Arizona Humane Society, Arizona Animal Welfare League, and Maricopa County Animal Care and Control to identify compatible shelter dogs for school staff to adopt and have trained. Participating MPS staff and their dogs (care teams) are certified by Pet Partners and are registered with the Therapy Animal Program.
The Mutt-i-grees® curriculum is written by Yale University and will be used to incorporate lessons on social and emotional learning, resiliency, empathy and the human-animal bond. Students may also interact directly with dogs for more individualized learning opportunities. Additionally, these dogs can serve as a trusted companion in the counseling, nurse or administrative offices for crisis intervention, behavioral de-escalation, or simply to address stress, anxiety and/or isolation.
The pilot schools are East Valley Academy, Johnson Elementary, Kino Junior High, Mountain View High School, and Rhodes Junior High.
