Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 4th Grade! I am so excited to be joining you on this exciting educational journey. This is my seventh year teaching at Norterra Canyon, and I absolutely love being a Pirate! Previously I taught 5th grade in the Paradise Valley School District. I have 2 children in DVUSD; a daughter in 7th Grade at Hillcrest and a son in 10th grade at O'Connor. I completed my Under-Grad program at ASU, as well as my Master's Degree.
I grew up in Chicago, Illinois, but moved to Arizona as a young girl. I love it here, and will never move back to the cold weather! In my free time I enjoy running, and I train in Brazilian Ju Jitsu. Learning something new as an adult has been a game changer for me! My whole family trains in Martial Arts and we really enjoy training together.
It is my belief that school should be a fun and engaging environment, and I work hard to achieve that in our classroom.
We will have a fabulous year together, and I am looking forward to getting to know you all!
