I have been in education for over 15 years and I've loved every moment of it!My family and I moved to Arizona in 2010. My husband and I have been married for over 30 years and we have five amazing children; four boys and one girl. We are also blessed to be the grandparents to three beautiful granddaughters.I have been in the Higley Unified School District since 2010.
