Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am very excited to begin another year here at Sonoran Foothills! I feel absolutely privileged to teach at such an outstanding school with such wonderful students, staff, parents, and families. I have had wonderful experiences at this school and I am sure this year will be another great one!
I graduated from ASU with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Early Childhood. This will be my 21st year teaching in the Deer Valley District. In my career I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.
My husband, Rickie, and I have 4 beautiful daughters, and we are so proud of all of them. I really enjoy being outdoors and doing outdoor activities like hiking and camping. I don't do a lot of cooking (my husband is the chef in our family), but I do love to bake! I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so desserts are a favorite of mine (as well as the entire line of Hostess products...sad, but true!) One of my favorite times of the year is Shark Week. I love, love, love learning about Great White Sharks. I find them so interesting! If I couldn't be a teacher, I think I would be a shark biologist. A dream of mine is to swim near Great White sharks in one of those underwater cages. I would probably be crazy scared, but I think I would love it!
Now you know a little bit about me. I look forward to learning about you!
