Arrgg Pirates, welcome to Third Grade! I am very excited to be part of the Norterra Canyon community again this year! This year will be my third year teaching third grade and I’m thrilled it will be at Norterra Canyon. I look forward to building a positive relationship with your child. I hope to offer your child a kind, safe, and fun environment so that they may acquire the skills necessary to meet their learning goals.
I have a long history with both Norterra Canyon and Deer Valley. My oldest son spent many years at Norterra Canyon and graduated from NC in 2017. He is now a junior in high school. My youngest son is still attending Norterra and will be in seventh grade. I was also a substitute teacher in the Deer Valley School District for a few years prior to working at Norterra Canyon and taught at many schools within the district from Kinder to 8th grade.
I have a Bachelors of Business Administration from the University of Texas Arlington. I spent ten years in the financial sector and left to focus on my family. After years of volunteering and working with students in the classroom, I fell in love with teaching and I chose to make a career change. I completed my Arizona State Teacher Certification through the accredited SCC Teacher Education Program in 2016.
More about me: My husband and I have been married for twenty-three years and together we have two sons. I enjoy hiking with friends, camping, family vacations, reading, ice coffee, dark chocolate, frozen yogurt, and dinner out (not cooking).
