     Hello 5th Grade Families,

    I am very excited to be your teacher this year. This will be my 5th year in 5th grade here at Cortina. In the past I have taught both 4th and 2nd grades, but have found that 5th grade is my favorite.

    A little about myself. I was born and raised in Arizona and love all this state has to offer. Running, hiking, swimming, and camping are a few of my favorite things. Most of these activities can be done year round here and this summer I fully enjoyed doing all 4 activites.

    I have been in some form of a teaching position from the age of 16. I started in a daycare then moved on to public school as a paraprofessional while I earned my teaching degree. I have been in the classroom as a teacher since 2006. This will be my 13th class of eager learners. I am very excited to meet you all!
