Degrees and Certifications:
After vacationing in Arizona for the past 15 years, I recently moved here from Washington. I decided to follow my youngest child who will be attending Grand Canyon University in the fall. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Wittenberg University in Ohio and a Master of Arts in Education with a certificate in Reading and Literacy from City University in Washington. I have been teaching for 17 years, with 10 of those years being at the first grade level. I am very patient and love working with six and seven year olds. I am passionate about teaching reading and see this as an important skill to be learned in first grade. In my free time, I enjoy attending sporting events, reading, hiking, and spending time with my children. I look forward to collaborating with fellow colleagues and parents to create a rich learning environment for our students.
