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 our first grade families. I am very excited to get to know the children as they learn and discover new things.
My teaching career began in Southern California where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from CSUB. I'm proud to say that I have taught first grade since 2006. Teaching 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 family time with my loving husband and our two high school-aged children. We are always busy with cross country, track, softball, and marching band! With so many places to visit, traveling and exploring our world are family goals we share together. I would love to say that I was born and raised in Hawaii, but only my mother had that wonderful privilege. However, I am very proud of my Hawaiian heritage which is why the beautiful islands of Hawaii are by far our favorite vacation destination!
