Welcome to 6th grade Science! I am looking forward to an amazing year!  In 1995 I earned a degree in Elementary and Special Education from Northern Arizona University. I have been teaching in Arizona ever since and love it! I have experience in many different areas including; Special Education, Kindergarten, Preschool, Developmental Preschool, 4th grade and 6th grade. I thoroughly enjoy teaching 6th grade and can't wait for another great year.  I have been at Diamond Canyon since 2007. Diamond Canyon is an amazing school and I am very proud to be a part of the DC team. Not only am I an educator at DC, but both of my children went to DC until they finished 8th grade. They are no longer at DC, but once a Coyote, always a Coyote!! 

I live in Anthem with my husband, Dave, and my two children Briana- 21 and Brayden- 18. We have called Anthem home since 2001. We love it here.  We enjoy everything the community has to offer. What an amazing place to raise a family.  We love participating in family activities together including; traveling, swimming and hiking.  One of our favorite places to travel is Massachussetts. We usually go there every summer to visit family.  
It is going to be a fantastic year, and I look forward to working with you and your child. I know we will make a great team!
