Welcome! I am looking forward to working with your child! There are so many exciting skills and topics to cover in 5th grade. It is my goal to foster understanding through engaging lessons in a warm, caring environment.
Let me introduce myself. My wonderful husband and I have lived in Sierra Vista for many years. We have a son in third grade and a daughter in kindergarten. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, painting, and reading. 
This will be my 15th year of teaching. I have taught in Riverside, Chandler and Sierra Vista. I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education, with a minor in science, from the University of Arizona. I earned my Master of Education degree, with distinction, from Northern Arizona University.
I know we will have a successful and memorable year. Throughout the school year I will keep you informed of our classroom activities and your child's progress. If there are any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me through your child's agenda notebook, by phone, or using email at Thank you!
