Welcome to my Kindergarten classroom!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Kindergarten team here at Innovation Academy!  We are a strong team and do all of our planning together as a team.  We have some great things planned for this year. 

Our family has literally lived all over the world as we moved for my husband's career in the US Army as an Apache Helicopter Pilot.  Most recently we lived in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates where I taught 1st grade at the American International school that our children attended.  Before that, I taught Kindergarten and First grade Gifted and Talented in Texas and Kindergarten in Georgia.  I was born and raised in Phoenix and graduated from ASU (Go Sun Devils) and started my teaching career in Phoenix teaching First Grade.  Living in so many countries and states was an incredible experience but we are happy to be finished moving all over and have settled down here in north Oro Valley and are in love with the area.  

I believe that every student has the ability to learn and be successful in school.  In order for students to make these achievements, parents and teachers need to work together as one team or village.  I'm so blessed to have this incredible village to be a part of and I'm thankful for the great support I get from the parents at Innovation Academy.
