Degrees and Certifications:
BA of Elementary Education from ASU
I feel so lucky to be teaching Science and Social Studies! I love all science and I'm learning with the students about our early American History this year. I graduated from ASU in 2010 with my Bachelor in Elementary Education and fulfilled a lifelong dream. This is my 8th year teaching at Chaparral Elementary, 4 years in 4th grade and 4 years in 5th. Chaparral has an amazing staff and I feel blessed to work with these professional men and women.
My family has lived in Arizona for 15 years and all my children attended Higley schools. My husband and I were in the military for 10 years previous and loved it. We lived in Germany twice, California, Texas, and Oklahoma. Needless to say I love to travel. My two oldest daughters are married and I have 4 grandchildren. I love being a grandma and visit them as often as possible.
Some of my hobbies and interests are reading, gardening, sewing, classical music and watching the food and/or home improvement channels. I love animals and a few classroom pets. I'm fascinated with space and one of my favorite movies is "The Martian.
