I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher this year. I am looking forward to creating a supportive classroom community where your child feels safe to learn and explore while developing new and lasting friendships with their peers and other educators on campus.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University in 2011. Since I graduated, I have taught preschool, 2nd grade, kindergarten and third grade. I attended the Deer Valley schools when I was a student from 4th-12th grade. I am happy to be back in the Deer Valley District as a teacher now for the past 3 years.
I have an amazing husband who loves music and shares his passion with his high school students and high school marching band students here in the Peoria School District. As of April 2018 we have a beautiful daughter that we love spending time with when we are both not attending to teaching duties.
I have a wonderful and loving family who has taught me to enjoy all of life's wonders and the worlds beauty. I grew up traveling Europe as my father was in the air force. I have grown up with a love for exploring and seeking the beauties of the outdoors. National Parks are a joy for me to visit as well as the beach, pine trees, and you can never go wrong going to Disneyland!
When I am not attending to teaching duties, I enjoy being a mother to my sweet baby girl that was born in April 2018. Madysen has added so much joy to Ryan and I's life and we don't take a moment for granted. It is fun watching her grow and learn each day from the simplicity of learning to smile and coo to crawling and walking and now tryign to talk. However, when I am not attending to wifely and motherly duties and take a moment for myself I find myself enjoying; reading, crafting, hiking, snowboarding, and training for triathlons.
I enjoy country music. I love reading and cuddling up on the couch; especially on a cloudy day. But my favorite reading time happens with my daughter on my lap and we are snuggled together at her bedtime.
I love each and everyday and try to find the beauty within that day.
