    I am very excited to work with your child this year at Centennial Elementary!  It is going to be a year filled with lots of learning and fun. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us!  I thought you’d like to know a little bit about me.

    I am married to my awesome husband, James.  We are foster parents to one 9 year old and adopted our son in November of 2017 after fostering him for 1.5 years! The kids take up most of our time, but some hobbies I enjoy are camping, boating, and reading!

    I am from Pennsylvania and I love living in Arizona!  I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and my Master’s Degree in Special Education from Grand Canyon University.  I am currently working on another Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with University of Phoenix. I believe, as a teacher, I should always be learning!

    This is my 6th year teaching special education.  It is my 1st year with the Higley School District.  I am very open with communication, so please contact me with any questions, concerns, and celebrations.  I know we will have a fantastic year!
