All About Me:
I am so excited to be a part of the Sierra Verde Viper team. I graduated from the University of Arizona (GO CATS) with my Bachelors in Elementary Education. This is my 12th year at Sierra Verde. I have taught Pre-K for 2 years and Kindergarten for 11 years. This is my 7th year teaching first grade.
I have 3 amazing children - Mackenzie is 24. She graduated from UofA and is working full time at a law firm. Zachary is 21 and graduated from Mountain Ridge High School. He is working at Home Depot. Luke is 14 and will be a freshman at Mountain Ridge. As if our house wasn't busy enough, we have an 9 year old Bloodhound named Daisy, a 5 year old Golden Retriever - Beau, and our Terrier mix Scout, is 2 years old. Plus a ferret - Peyton Manning. Luke has a leopard gecko - Gary. I also have a box turtle, her name is Carl and she spends most of her days at school in our classroom.Three years ago I got my real estate license and have been doing that on the side and during the summer. I work with eXp Realty. I am excited for the opportunity to help people find their dream homes in addition to teaching.
We are a football family. We are huge Cardinal fans and enjoy going to the games. We even travel to Tucson to support our beloved Wildcats during football season. We also love going to the beach. We spend time in Oceanside every summer.
