This is my 25th year teaching.  I am originally from Chicago, Illinois (Go Cubs!).  I have lived in Northwest Tucson (Oro Valley) since 1973.  I went through school in the Amphitheater School District.
I have two beautiful daughters!  My oldest just graduated from U of A and my youngest is a Junior in college.  I a sweet daschund, Daisy, and a bloodhound named Mack!  I enjoy traveling, spending time with my large family and friends, and continuing my learning journey.

Defining Moment in Education

I knew I wanted to be a teacher when my third grade teacher at Harelson Elementary inspired me to love learning and that I have unique gifts to share with the world.

Core Educational Belief

I believe that all students can learn when given rich, meaningful and purposeful tools.  An educator should empower intrinsic motivation in learners.

Prior Experience

I have taught elementary for 25 years.  I have experience teaching in a self-contained gifted classroom. 

I have had many opportunities to mentor university students as a cooperating teacher.
