Welcome back to a new school year!
I am very excited about being your teacher this year and building new memories with you all! As a second year Bobcat at Sonoran Foothills, I am very excited to continue working as a special education teacher as I go into my 12th year of teaching. I moved down to the Phoenix area from Flagstaff in 2016 and taught in the Tempe Elementary School District as a special education teacher. While teaching in the Flagstaff Unified School District, I had the opportunity to teach in the general education classroom settings from kindergarten grade to second grade. However, my heart truly is in special education.
I am a Northern Arizona University alumni (Go Jacks!!). I earned a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and Early childhood development, and then continued onto grad school shortly after. Within the following few years, I earned two graduate degrees in Educational Leadership and in Special Education.
At the end of the day, I get to go home to my two little ones, Ryker and Millie, Mr. Falleur, my dog Pepper, and my stepson Nathan. I love to go to the ocean, cook, run marathons and spend time in nature!
