I am in my 5th year of teaching and have taught K, 1st, 2nd, and middle school science. I love creating engaging units for teachers that are aligned with Common Core Standards.
I have a very hands-on teaching style with a goal to engage all students in a love for learning. I believe learning is best when it is seen, heard, and felt so we are always on the move in first grade!
My greatest award is the success of my students! I love working with kids and nurturing their self-esteem and achievement.
I am a K-8 certified teacher with a Reading Specialist endorsement. I have also taken several classes in gifted education. I have a Bachelor's in Architectural Design from Arizona State University and was in the design and architecture field for 20 years. I went back to school in 2008 to become credentialed in K-8 elementary education and have never looked back! My husband has recently joined me in the teaching world as a 6th-8th grade Math teacher.
I am the wife of an amazing husband that I am proud to be married to for 23 years and have two wonderful children, a 6th grade girl and a 3rd grade boy. I teach at an A-rated K-8 school that is very family focused and I am so very fortunate to be at the same school as my children. In my spare time I love creating, reading, and spending time trying to keep up with my very active family.
