Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to third grade and our Horseshoe Trails Community during the upcoming 2019-2020 school year! I am very excited to have your child in my classroom and for you to be involved with their learning! I am so glad to be a part of your child’s learning experience.
Let me begin by telling you a little bit about myself. I was born in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. I had lived in Illinois my entire life until I moved out to Tucson in August of 2008 to attend U of A. Go Wildcats! My parents and my little brother recently joined me out in Arizona. I graduated from the University of Arizona and accepted my first teaching position at Sycamore Elementary School in the Vail School District. After I got married, my husband and I decided to move closer to both of our families. This is my eighth year teaching, and my fifth year at Horseshoe Trails. I have been given so many wonderful opportunities to provide your child with the best learning experience. In my free time, I love cooking and baking, watching movies, arts & crafts, and spending time with my family and friends.
I am looking forward to working with you and your child. I am confident that it is going to be a terrific year of learning and growth, for both my students and myself. I value you as my partner in your child’s education.
I have great things planned for us and cannot wait to get to know each one of you. I strongly believe that success happens when everyone works together as a team and remembers that success happens when we believe in ourselves!
