Degrees and Certifications:
BA Music Education 2005 Certified Substitute, Deer Valley 2019 DV S.T.A.R. Nominee 2020 Currently enrolled in ASU Master's of Secondary Education with Teaching Certification Degree
I grew up in the Los Angeles area, and graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education in 2005. My family and I moved to Phoenix in 2014. My husband is a paramedic and operations manager for Global Medical Response ambulance, and I have 3 kids who attend school in Deer Valley. My oldest sons are in 4th and 2nd grade, and my daughter will begin kindergarten in Fall of 2020. I have worked in a few different jobs, but came to love teaching through a few long-term substitute positions. My most recent one was at Sunrise! I have also worked at Starbucks for nearly 9 years, and at my church teaching the elementary kids. This is my first year teaching full time, as a teaching intern. That means I don't have my credential YET, but I am currently taking classes at ASU to earn my Master's Degree in Secondary Education with Teaching Credential. In my free time, I play Minecraft and Fortnite with my family and I like to read science fiction/fantasy novels. I also enjoy crocheting and avoiding cleaning my house. :)
