Degrees and Certifications:
Aloha and welcome to first grade at Sonoran Foothills! As the school year begins, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our first grade families. I am very excited to get to know the children as they learn and discover new things.
My first grade teaching career began in 2006 in Southern California after graduating from CSUB with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I joined the Deer Valley School District in 2014. Teaching first grade is my passion and I feel so blessed to have been part of the Sonoran Foothills staff upon its opening. Go Bobcats!
Apart from my teaching career, I especially enjoy having quality family time with my husband Kalani and our two children, staying active, traveling, reading, and shopping! As my family and I venture into a new season in our lives, my husband and I are very excited to have both of our children attend GCU where our son Kaleo will be part of the club sport running team and our daughter Kiana (a former Bobcat) will be in Air Force ROTC and the Thundering Heard Pep Band. Lopes up!
