A little about me......


    I am what Deer Valley calls a "come back" kid.  I attended schools in Deer Valley from the middle of 3rd grade all the way through high school.  I loved my educational journey and experiences as a student in this district.  That's why I chose to "come back" and work for this EXTRAORDINARY school district.  I enjoy this amazing community; especially my Desert Sage GECKOS!

    In 2004, I earned by Bachelor's degree as Summa Cum Laude in Elementary Education with a focus on grades 5-9 from ASU West.  I am currently working on receiving my endorsement in Gifted Education and my highly qualification in middle school math endorsement.  In the near future, I look forward to earning my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.

    This is will be my 14th year teaching.  I have taught 2nd through 5th grade over those 14 years.  I have been at Desert Sage for the last 11 years.  Desert Sage is my home away from home.  GO GECKOS!

    At home, I have three amazing kids, a Fiancé, two dogs, and two cats.  Colton, Keirra, and Connor are my world and keep me very busy.  I have been with my Fiancé for 20 years and we enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, snowboarding, and going to the lake.  We take our German Shepard and Siberian Husky where ever we go!  

    Finally.....if I can manage to find the time, I enjoy putting in a few hours at Safeway.
