I graduated from Ray High School in Kearny, Arizona. Next, I attended Central Arizona College where I received my Associate of Science degree with honors. Then I moved to Yosemite National Park to work in the retail sector, where I met my husband Lee. Then we moved to Tucson, Arizona where I attended the University of Arizona and received my Bachelor's of Science degree with honors. Finally, I attended the University of Phoenix where I received my Master of Arts in Elementary Education with honors. In addition to my degrees I have also earned my SEI endorsement and my Reading Specialist endorsement.
I have been teaching since 2003 starting with the Sunnyside School District in Tucson, the Leman Academy, and Coronado. I have been a Reading Interventions teacher for Kinder-5th grades, and a first grade classroom teacher.
When I am not working I like to spend time with my family traveling, going to Disneyland, visiting zoos and museums, and going to Diamondback games. I have two daughters, one son-in-law, and two grandsons, Marty and Triston. I also enjoy spending time with my three rescue dogs; Bugsy, Dodger (corgi mixes) and Freeway (poodle mix).
