Welcome to another wonderful and exciting year at Higley Traditional Academy! I am very excited to be back and teaching 6th grade Language Arts again. This is my 11th year at HTA and my 16th year teaching. This year is going to be full of fun!
I know that one of the hardest things about starting a new school year is wondering what the teacher will be like. I was born in Southern California (which is where most of my family still lives) and I moved to Arizona when I was nine. I graduated from Arizona State University (GO DEVILS!) with a degree in Elementary Education. I then continued my studies and graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Masters of Education with a literacy focus.
I enjoy time with my family, reading, traveling, playing with my pups, cooking, cheering on the Sun Devils, and anything outdoors. Whenever possible, I make time to go back to California and spend time with my family.
