Hello and welcome to the 2020-2021 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 6th year teaching at Desert Willow and my 12th 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 Cactus Shadows High School. Brooke is a senior this year, and Garrett is a freshman. When I'm not teaching, you will find me spending time with family and friends, reading, doing almost anything outdoors- running, walking our dog, Daisy, hiking and exploring new places. I don't even mind the heat! In fact, I prefer it!
I look forward to another fantastic school year filled with new opportunities for growth, learning, and friendships.
