I am very excited for the opportunity to teach your child. First grade is an exciting year and I am dedicated to making this a successful, memorable year for your child.
My husband, Dave, and I moved to Gilbert, Arizona, in 2001 with our three daughters, Amanda, Tiffany, and Brandi. We live right within the Higley Unified School District boundaries and we love Gateway Pointe Elementary and it's wonderful administration and staff. This is my twelfth year at Gateway Pointe. I’m very excited to be here at Gateway Pointe teaching 1st grade.
I knew I wanted to work in a profession that helped people at a very young age. I got my Bachelors of Science in Lifestyle Management and worked in a hospital setting teaching people how to live healthier lives. I began coaching my daughters in various sports including basketball, softball, and soccer. It was at that time I realized I loved working with and teaching children, so I went back to school and got my teaching certificate.
