Hello!   I am so excited to be in my fifth year on the Canyon Springs team!  This is my 22nd year of teaching and I have taught the first, fourth and fifth, sixth and seventh grades.  I have been a teacher with the Deer Valley School District since 2005.
 I am a Maryland native but have called Arizona home for the past 20 years and in Anthem for 19 of them.  My fifteen-year-old daughter Kalina is a sophomore at Boulder Creek.  We have three amazing cats:  Jack, Sven and El  (ode to Stranger Things!) I enjoy reading, playing video games (I'm a kid at heart!), making jewelry and watching my daughter do competitive dance and go to BC games as my daughter is also on the Spiritline team. 
 I am so thrilled to be teaching 7th grade social studies again this year!  I can not wait to work with and make connections with my new students.  I firmly believe that learning is best achieved in a safe, loving and positive environment and I encourage my students to take risks and work together as a supportive community.  I also hope that my students will find learning our world's history as fascinating as I find it! 
Please feel free to contact me at any time  (email is best).  I appreciate parents and students reaching out and will always try to do what is best for your child and am always happy to listen to any concerns or answer any questions that you have.   It's going to be a terrific year!
