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!
