Degrees and Certifications:
I'm so excited to be your child's teacher this year!
I can't believe I will be starting my thirteenth year as an educator! I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University in 2008. I then went on to earn a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University in 2010. I have endorsements in Early Childhood Education, English as a Second Language, and Middle Grades Mathematics. I have previously taught second fand fourth grade, as well as middle school math. I am elated to be in third grade this year!
I was born and raised in Phoenix, and I attended Deer Valley Schools from Kindergarten through High School. I started out at Esperanza and then moved to Desert Sage in fourth-grade. From there I attended Hillcrest Middle School and then had the pleasure of being a part of the first graduating class to attend Sandra Day O'Connor High School all four years. I married my husband, Drew, in 2013. We have two kids, Shane, 5, and Blake, 3. In my spare time, I love watching sports! I will watch any sport, but I especially love the Arizona Coyotes. Our son Shane is even named after their former captain, Shane Doan!
It is my hope that we can work together as partners to make this school year as meaningful as possible for your child. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time throughout the year.
