Hi everyone! Many of you may recognize me as the former Assistant Principal here at West Wing School. This school year, I have made the best decision to go back to my first passion: TEACHING MATH! Over the past ten years as an educator, I have taught 7th and 8th grade math, coached teachers in all subject areas, and was the Assistant Principal of the best school in our state - West Wing!
I grew up in New Jersey loving the beach and the New York Giants. When I graduated from high school, I made the decision to attend the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) in Tucson and I decided to stay in Arizona. I began my teaching career in Tucson, where I taught 7th grade math for 2 years. In 2012, I moved to Phoenix and joined the Deer Valley School District at Deer Valley Middle School. I spent five years at DVMS teaching 7th and 8th grade math and coaching teachers as an Instructional Coach. In 2017, I came to West Wing School and when I made the decision to teach this school year, I knew I had to stay at West Wing. I am the very proud mother of Austin (one year old human son) and Madden (four year old dog son). My husband and our family live in the Deer Valley District because of the quality teachers and administrators that we have.
I know that this school year is not starting out as a typical school year but we will all conquer it like true Mustangs! Welcome to 7th grade - let's learn some Math!!
