Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to be a part of the amazing Chaparral 3rd grade team! 3rd grade is a big year for students to grow with lots of engaging and fun activities. This will be my fifth year as a certified teacher, and my first year swimming with the Chaparral Sharks! I have taught 3rd and 5th grade.
I'm originally from Chicago, and I've been out here since August 2011. I still can't get used to this heat! I got my Bachelor's Degree at Northern Illinois University in Family and Child Studies. I also got my Master's Degree in Elementary Education at University of Phoenix. My favorite things to do are to spend time with family and friends and hang with my dog and cat! I also enjoy going on hikes, working out, and playing sports.
