Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! I have been teaching in the Deer Valley district for over 32 years. This year I will be teaching seventh grade physical education. I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of classes while teaching in the district at the seventh/eighth grade level. I have two adult son's who both were given the opportunity to navigate and graduate from the DV education system. A Steelers fan at heart being that I was raised in Pennsylvania. I do enjoy all sports and activities. A few of my top favorites to do on a daily basis would include hiking, yoga and walks with my rescue dog. I enjoy quiet time as well, reading a good book and reading the word ever chance I get. Absolutely love the cooler weather and look forward to the fall and winter months ever year here in Arizona.
As things continue to look and feel different at this time we are going to do our best to embrace a balance of our mental, emotional and social health throughout the school year. What better way to do this than to continue to exercise while keeping up with your academics! When one is physically active and healthy this allows us to complete the task. I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you individually as well as a class. Stay safe and healthy while continuing to exercise each day.
