Hello and welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am excited to be teaching 5th grade language arts again this year, as it is my privilege to help foster a passion for reading and writing in all students. This is my 5th year teaching at Desert Willow and my 11th year teaching overall.
I grew up in Arizona and attended Arizona State University where I obtained my BA in Elementary Education. My husband and I have 2 kids that attend school in the Cave Creek School District. Our daughter is at Cactus Shadows High School and our son is at Sonoran Trails Middle School. When I'm not teaching you will find me spending time with my family and friends, reading, and enjoying our beautiful Arizona climate. Yes, I even enjoy the heat!
I look forward to another fantastic school year filled with new opportunities for growth, learning, and friendships.
