Greetings and Welcome to Fourth Grade!
This is my 10th year at Las Brisas Elementary, my 6th year in fourth grade, and my 21th year in education. I received my Masters in Educational Leadership in 2011 from Northern Arizona University and my Bachelors in Education in 2001 from Arizona State University. Prior to coming to Deer Valley, I taught special education at a private school in Phoenix for 9 years. I hold certifications in elementary K-8, special education, and Principal K-12.
A little about me
I was born in Sewickley, PA and moved to Arizona with my parents (I am an only child) when I was 15 years old. I have been married to my husband Lance for 19 year. We have two boys Max 12, who is a 2nd degree Black Belt in Taekwondo and Zack 13, who is a video game and technology expert. They keep us very busy. I love sewing, gardening, bike riding, playing games, and swimming with my family. We also recently bought a Jeep and love to travel around the state and go off-roading.
