Welcome to 3rd Grade!
Welcome to 3rd Grade!! I am thrilled to be joining the caring and professional team of educators at Desert Willow this school year as a new teacher! I have been a proud parent of two Desert Willow students for 6 years and have served our campus in various volunteer and educational roles during that time. Through my many amazing experiences on our campus, I found my passion and love for teaching. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and am currently working towards earning my teaching certificate.
I cannot wait to begin the school year and connect with my students and their families. I believe in fostering the whole child by creating a safe, empowering and caring learning environment.
I enjoy spending time with my family and my sweet dog, exercising, hiking, reading and cooking.
