Experience
I have been teaching for 17 years.  I taught at Wilson Primary School in Phoenix for 6 years, teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade. .  I have been at Greenfield for 11 years.  At Greenfield, I have taught 5th grade and Kindergarten. The past few years, I taught the "Little Chefs"  cooking class for K/1 at Gilbert's Summer School program as well.  

On a more personal note....
I love teaching kindergarten!  Education is my passion and I love to facilitate change and growth.  I come to work each day happy to see my little kindergartners.  They make my day!  

I am married and have two children:  Sophia (21) and Hollye (6).  I also have a grandson, Jack (3).  My husband Howard and I love animals.  So we have...8 dogs, hermit crabs, mice, birds, , fish, and a miniature horse.  My family gives me great joy and I feel truly blessed. 

Although I was born in Arizona, I spent most of my years growing up in Chicago.  At every family holiday, I was always the one watching my little cousins.  One of my cousins still remembers me teaching him to read! I guess I was destined to be a teacher from a young age.   I worked all through high school and college at a day care center and eventually taught Pre-K.  When I went to college, I majored in anthropology and wanted to be a primatologist  (studying primates).  As time went on and I had my first child, I decided to become a teacher and share my love of learning.  It has been a wonderful and life changing experience.  

I live in Glendale and have a pretty long drive every day but teaching at Greenfield is worth it!  My busy life doesn't allow for too many hobbies but I am an avid reader.  I enjoy volunteering on the weekend in the Children's Ministry at my Church as well.
