Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 27th year teaching in Deer Valley District. I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Elementary Education and my Master of Education Degree is from Northern Arizona University. I am almost a native, I moved to Arizona from Chicago when I was 8 years old.
My son is a senior in college and my daughter is a senior in high school. 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 3rd grade - 6th grade during Response to Intervention time. I am teaching System 44 and Read 180 programs to small groups. I look forward to helping my students grow as readers, seeing their reading abilities and confidence increase, and learning about what interests each of my students have.
UPDATE- I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy!
I have sent emails to all my students' parents to inform you of how to have your students get on the Read 180 and System 44 programs. The goal is 15 minutes a day. :-)
I also have sent an email with my office hours and Zoom password. Zoom will start April 7th. I hope to see all my students' smiling faces very soon!
