This is my twenty-fourth year encouraging and teaching children. I graduated summa cum laude from ASU where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education degree. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd (gifted cluster), and 4th grades, and I am currently working on earning my gifted endorsement. My interests include gardening, reading, and bird watching.
    I am a highly-motivated, enthusiastic, and dedicated teacher who works hard to ensure all students become successful learners. I create a community in my classroom where kids feel safe, have mutual respect, and work as a team in a stimulating atmosphere to achieve goals. I am committed to the care and education of young children and love being a teacher!
