Welcome to 2nd Grade 2020-2021 and Room 103! I am so excited to join the amazing staff here at Legend Springs. I have enjoyed 21 years of teaching, including 8 years of Kindergarten/1st-3rd Reading Intervention, 7 years of PreK-8th Music Therapy, and 6 years of 1st-2nd grade.

On a personal note, my husband Brian and I have been married for 25 years. We have 4 children: Emma (18, Freshman at GCU), Ava (15, Sophmore at Ridge), Jack (12, Terramar 7th grader), and Max (9, Terramar 4th grader). Charlie is our Red Retriever who just celebrated his 11th birthday! 

I look forward to an amazing school year! :D
