Hello and Welcome!
I am the Gifted Specialist at Constitution where I am the longest surviving educator!
You can find more information by clicking on 'Academics' then scrolling to the bottom where it says 'Gifted'.
I started teaching in 1984 right after getting married to my old high school friend, Gary. I've taught in San Diego, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Jose in that order before coming back here to Phoenix. My hobbies include sewing, reading, exercising and crafting. I try to golf and play pickleball, but I'm not very good! ;)
Although I started teaching in '84, I took several years off to stay home with our three boys and when I decided to get back into teaching in 2013, I landed here at Constitution, where I was the 5th Grade ELA (Reading and Writing) teacher for 6 years, raising scores every year.
I got my gifted endorsement and have been teaching the gifted and working part-time since 2019. Title 1 schools are supposed to be SPARK (enrichment only) without grades, but we also offer acceleration (with grades) in math. Again, please go to Academics and then scroll down to Gifted to get more indepth explanations of all that we offer.
I look forward to working with you and your child.
