Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to be teaching 6th Grade Language Arts this year at Sunset Ridge! I cannot wait to meet every single one of you and to help you build your skills in reading, writing, grammar, speaking, listening, research, technology, and more! But, above all, I hope I can help you develop a lifelong love of learning.
I am an Arizona native and was a student in DVUSD from Kindergarten to 12th grade. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education (English) from Arizona State University in 2016, and rejoined the DVUSD family as an 8th Grade Language Arts Teacher at Sunset Ridge. Now, after 4 years teaching 8th, I’m moving down to 6th, and I feel this will be where I truly belong! I strive to build an environment where you feel you belong as well.
Please know that despite not being able to see you in person, you ARE a member of my classroom, and I care deeply about you, your well-being, and your success! I am here to provide any additional support you may need during this tough time. We will get through this, Hawks!!!
