Being a part of the Canyon Springs Elementary School family is something that is very important to me as an educator and mother. I have lived in Arizona all but the first year of my life, growing up in Cave Creek. After graduating Cactus Shadows High School I attended Northern Arizona University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a focus on Early Childhood. After getting married (Tory) and returning to Phoenix, I worked for 5 years as a first grade teacher in the Glendale Elementary School District. While teaching in Glendale, I earned my Masters in Elementary Education with a Reading Endorsement and English as a Second Language, before my son Riley was born. I briefly left the field of education to pursue my passion for childhood literacy development and earned my Masters degree in Library Science from the University of Arizona. While a Youth Librarian at the Desert Foothills Library in Cave Creek, my daughter Ashley was born. I returned to teaching in 2011 as a Reading Enrichment teacher at Desert Garden Elementary in the Glendale Elementary District. I have currently taught in the Deer Valley Unified School District for the past 6 years; 2 years as a Kindergarten Teacher and the last 4 years as a 5th grade Science and Social Studies/American History Teacher.
I am looking forward to an exciting and rewarding school year with your child!
