Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education Highly Qualified Middle Grades Science Endorsement K-8 Reading Endorsement
I graduated with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. I have since continued my education in order to earn a K-8 reading endorsement and am also highly qualified to teach science with a science endorsement. I am happy to call DVUSD my teaching home, especially here at West Wing. I taught sixth grade here for three years but am overjoyed to be finally returning to what feels like "home" in first grade. I absolutely love teaching students to become fluent readers. My goal is to make all my students feel like they are welcome and loved, while still encouraging them to reach their full potential academically.
I have been married for 16 years and am the mom to three crazy, amazing kids. My family and I love to camp, hike, and be outdoors. You can usually find us sleeping in the mountains or paddle boarding on any lake we can find. In the rare moments I have down time I love to read, stroll the aisles of home stores, and try all the coffee shops!
Email is the best way to contact me! Please be patient with response times as I am actively teaching throughout the school day. If you have emergency information, you will need to contact the office.
