Hello! I am Coronado's Literacy Coach. I have been with the Higley District for 17.5 years. I have taught 3rd and 4th Grades. I have also taught 8th Grade English, and I was Coronado's Literacy Coach for two years previously. I am so excited to be back in this role. I have a passion for literacy! I am very excited for the 2019-2020 school year.
I am the proud mother of two kids, Cory and Kylie. They are 18 year old twins who recently graduated from Williams Field High School. I am also a pet mom to an adorable cat named Ollie and a rambunctious dog, Molly. I am an Arizona Native; I grew up in Show Low and have resided in the East Valley since 1987. I LOVE football, both college and professional. Go Devils and Cards!
