Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 28th year teaching in Deer Valley District. I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Elementary Educatio. My Master of Education Degree and Reading Endorsement are from Northern Arizona University. I am almost a native, I moved to Arizona from Chicago when I was 8 years old.
We adopted 2 puppies February 2020 because May 2020 my son graduated from college and my daughter from high school and we are now empty nesters. My husband and I enjoy traveling and spending time with our children and extended families.
I also like to spend my free time scrapbooking, reading, watching movies, doing things with my family and walking when the weather permits.
This year, my role is to support 2nd and 3rd grade students and teachers. I look forward to helping my students grow as readers, watching their reading abilities and confidence increase, and learning about what interests each of my students have.
