Hi! This is my 1st year working at Desert Sky Middle School! I have been a teacher for 10 years and in education as a whole for 12 years. This year at Desert Sky I will be teaching in the Level C area, and working with special education students on Writing, Reading,Math, Social Studies, and Science- with a focus on 7th grade curriculum. We will also be working on social emotional skills, and life skills. The grade level curriculum switches every other year.
My family and I moved to Phoenix from Minneapolis, Minnesota in June of 2017. Yes, it was 120 degrees the day we arrived! We love it here and can't wait to hike some trails this Fall when it cools down outside. I have two boys in grades 11 and 12 at Boulder Creek High School. Their names are Julian (16) and Owen (17). My husband Kris is the Human Resources manager for Paddy'O Furniture in Arizona and Nashville, but was a teacher for 23 years. I love to travel, watch my sons play sports and play in the marching band, as well as spending time just relaxing at home with my family. My family has a Border Collie Mix dog named Lego, and a Cattle dog/Golden Retriever named Lily. They are awesome dogs and they love AZ!
I am so happy to be at Desert Sky! Please don't hesitate to call me if you want to chat about a concern you have or just to say hello. I look forward to a fantastic 2019-2020 school year!
