I have been an educator since 1993. I have taught: PreK, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 1/2 multi-age and a 3/4 Gifted cluster class. Arizona was my home for many years and the past 9 have been spent in Colorful Colorado.
My teaching style is always evolving and changing. I love to learn new things that enhance my craft and promote higher student achievement. I am a very laid back, soft spoken teacher. I allow a lot of student choice (daily 5, where to sit, topics for writing, etc.).
Yet to be added
I am a graduate of Grand Canyon University.
I am married, have three children (13,15,17), love to camp and enjoy the outdoors.
