Why I am committed to Amphi
I have been working in the Amphitheater School District for 19 years. I am a born and raised Tucsonian. I went to Harelson, Cross and CDO so I have a lot of Amphi pride! My children are following the same education path I did growing up. Our district holds a value for not only providing the best educational experience but also developing responsible citizens and community members.
Hobbies and Interest
When I'm not at achool, you will find me at the baseball field with my two boys, Cooper and Carter, and my husband, Brandon. If I happen to have a moment at home, I'm usually crafting somthing up!
I actually never wanted to become a teacher. I wanted to be a pediatric nurse. I realized I did not like Anatomy and Physiology. After trying out 4 different majors, I started working as a teaching assistant when I was 19 at Rillito, a school for children with severe and multiple disabilities. I then quickly realized how much I enjoyed working with children, especially children with special needs. I changed my whole path of education and have loved every minute of it.
