First grade is an exciting year to assist students in using their natural curiosity to explore their world and dig deeper into the learning foundation they have already begun. I endeavor to guide students to learn how to be problem solvers, readers and writers, while instilling a love of learning, collaboration and community.
I look forward to sharing this wonderful journey with my firsties and their families.
Being a teacher was my childhood dream, and I am grateful I chased that dream because teaching is my passion. I obtained my B.A. in Education from ASU and a M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from NAU. It has been my pleasure to teach in Gilbert my entire career starting in 2000, and have been a Greenfield Gator since 2015. My husband and I have three amazing children who attend Gilbert schools. Outside of school, I enjoy epic family game nights filled with laughter, baking with and for my family in a quest to find a brownie I don’t like, and youth sports with my kids.
