    Hello and welcome to my 3rd grade classroom! I am excited to be your teacher, and am looking forward to another fun year at Power Ranch! I was born and raised on Long Island, New York.  I enjoy decorating, crafts, running and traveling with my husband and 3 sons.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I began my educational journey at Clemson University where I attended for 2 years pursuing a math degree. After realizing my dream of wanting to work with children, I switched majors and received my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Ashworth College. I worked in the Early Childhood Education field for 13 years as a director, district manager, and accreditation specialist. I later graduated from the University of Phoenix with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and have been teaching in Arizona since 2014.
