Why I am committed to Amphi
- Amphi is dedicated to the success of all children, and I feel blessed to be a part of that! I am excited for my 9th year in the district!
Defining Moment in my Education
- I adored my 2nd grade teacher and could not wait to see her each day. She was a constant source of security. I want to have that same impact and to make a positive difference in the life of my students.
Why I Am a REACH teacher
- I adore the creativity, passion, sensitivity, individuality, and innovation of my students. REACH kids "reach" my heart in a special way (see what I did there...ha-ha)!
Hobbies and Interests
- I enjoy podcasts, books, writing, movies, Netflix, music, being creative, and spending time with my family.
- I wrote a children's book called The Quirky Cactus inspired by a real cactus I often drive by.
- I also love keeping in touch with my old students. I am so proud when I hear all of the awesome successes my past students are having!
