Hello Spartan Families!
    Welcome to 7th grade!  I am very excited for the school year to begin and to be teaching my fourth year at Sossaman Middle School.  I will be co-teaching 3 English Language Arts classes with Mr. Emenecker as well as teaching Academic Strategies in my own classroom. Students can stop by my room during most A lunches Monday - Thursday for assistance, guidance, or support.  Many of my daily lessons and activities will be available on Edmodo.  Your student will have access to that site to stay on top of requirements and activities.
    This year marks the beginning of my 24th year working with children.  I started in California as a teacher's assistant in preschool.  I then taught and guided at-risk youth in the school, residential and home settings.  Shortly after moving to Arizona with my family in 2005, I taught preschool where I enjoyed this young age for 8 years.  I joined Sossaman and the HUSD family in 2014 and truly love teaching middle school students!
    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  Cheers to a fantastic 2018-2019 school year!
