Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Proper

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Arizona State University in 2001. Since I graduate, I have worked for the Deer Valley Unified School District for 20 years. I have taught all my years in Kindergarten except for my first year which was in a 2nd/3rd grade multiage classroom.

I have three amazing children: Alex 26, Ashleigh 20, and Alleigh 13. Alex is the webmaster for the Army National Guard. Ashleigh is continuing her education at PVCC for another year to complete her Associates Degree then plans on transferring to ASU’s college of Science. Last but not least my youngest daughter Alleigh who is in the 8th grade at Norterra Elementary. She spends her free time doing gymnastics.

When I am not busy keeping up with my children’s schedule, I like to spend my time running, hiking, snowboarding, relaxing by the pool but most importantly I love spending time with my family and friends!
