    Welcome to my 4th grade classroom!  We have many fun topics to learn about, so let's make it a great year.  I'm here to support my students as they learn and grow throughout the year and to provide a safe learning environment.  As a teacher I encourage students to put forth their best effort and engage in class discussions, projects, and other activities.


    I was born in Arizona and have lived here most of my life.  I love the sunny Arizona weather and feel that this a great place to live and raise a family.  I have also lived in Utah where I attended Brigham Young University and received a bachelor's degree in elementary education.  After attending BYU, I remained in Utah where I began my career as a 4th grade teacher in the Jordan School District.   I realized that year how much I enjoyed teaching and began to develop a passion for helping young children reach their potentional.  Before teaching in the Higley School District, I worked for Mesa Public Schools where I taught 1st, 4th, and 5th grades.  I AM EXCITED to be here at Bridges Elementry!  I feel privileged  to work at an incredible future-focused school with kids who are eager to learn!


    When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family, being outdoors, cleaning house, exercising, and going to the BEACH!


    Let's continue to have a great year!
