I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I went to Deer Valley High School and Northern Arizona University. After I graduated, I lived and worked in Denver, Colorado for a few years.
I began my teaching career in South Korea, at a Montessori kindergarten. After 2 years, I moved to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where I taught 3rd grade for 5 years.
This summer, I moved back to Arizona, with my husband, son, and 2 dogs. I can’t wait to take them hiking, swimming, and exploring around our great state.
My husband, Brian, is from Toronto in Canada. My dogs names are Rufus and Guster. My son, Mason, is 14 months old. He was born in Vietnam.
I have been to many countries in Asia. I love to try new things in each country. Some of my favorites include hiking in Korea, Kayaking in Vietnam, eating sushi in Japan, and swimming with turtles in Bali!
I am so excited to be teaching 4th grade at Constitution Elementary School.
I look forward to meeting everyone, virtually. It’s going to be a great year, online and in the classroom.
