This is my 28th year teaching in Deer Valley District. I have taught 2nd and 3rd grade. For the last 13 years I have been a Reading Specialist. I am happy to be joining the Mirage family.
I am almost a native, I moved to Arizona from Chicago when I was 8 years old.
We adopted 2 puppies February 2020. 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.
I look forward to helping my students grow as readers, watching their reading abilities and confidence increase, and learning about what interests my students have.
