Defining Moment in my Education
As a child, I always loved school and getting good grades. After high school, I got married and started my family. While raising my daughters and volunteering in their classrroms, I decided to attend college and get a degree in education. Now, after teaching many wonderful kids for eighteen years, I still love to go to school each day!
Core Educational Belief
I believe that all children can learn and it is my responsibility to help my students succeed.
I have taught Grades Kindergarten through 8th grade in the Amphitheater School District since 2001, with all but one year in the primary grades.
