Welcome to Kindergarten! I am excited to be your child's teacher. This will be my 5th year teaching Kindergarten. I keep coming back because it is the BEST grade ever!!! I was born and grew up here in Phoenix, Arizona, where I attended Glendale Community College for a few years. My husband and I moved to New Jersey in 2011 where I continued my education and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology at Stockton University. Although we loved the changing color of leaves in the fall, we had enough of the cold winters and hurricanes, so we ventured back to Arizona in 2017 and we are loving the dry heat again! When I am not at school, I love reading, cooking, baking, decorating, and spending time with my family. We have a dog named Blue and we love him so much! I am in the slow process of writing my own children's book(s). I developed an interest in children's literature while I was taking a college class and it is my goal to one day get my stories published. I hope to instill the same excitement and joy of reading and writing in my students.  I look forward to meeting my new little friends and getting to know their families during this next year's adventures.
