kids reading
  • This is my 13th year as a Reading Specialist. I have also taught 2nd and 3rd grade.  I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Elementary Education. My Master of Education Degree is from Northern Arizona University.

    I moved to Arizona from Chicago when I was 8 years old.

    I have 2 children. Marc is a senior at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Aimee is a senior in high school. I also have a 10 year old black and white cocker spaniel named Fancy. 

    My husband and I like to travel and spend time with our children and extended families. 

    I spend my free time scrapbooking, reading, seeing movies, doing things with my family and walking when the weather permits.


    This year, my role is to support 3rd grade - 6th grade Response to Intervention. I will be teaching the 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.
