  • I am originally from Lincoln, NE. where I began working with young children.  In 1997, I moved to Arizona, where I pursued a Business Management Degree.  After having 2 children, I took some time to be home with them.  Once they were off to school, I knew that working with children was my passion.  I have worked in the Cave Creek School District for 8 years as a Paraprofessional and most recently completed my post baccalaureate teaching certification program.  I am excited to teach 1st grade at Desert Sun Academy.

  • I believe that 1st. grade is a year of many important milestones.  Children dive into deeper academic skills.  1st. grade is a pivotal year for building reading skills.  I look forward to helping your child transition into this new role.
