I have been teaching since 2000. I began my teaching career in San Manuel, AZ. I received my National Board Certification in Early Childhood Generalist in November of 2011. I joined the Maricopa Unified School District family in the fall of 2013. I have been a New Teacher Mentor in our District since 2016. Early Childhood Education has always been a passion of mine. I love teaching my students with hands-on activities and lessons that inspire creativity and learning.
My hobbies include crafting, cooking, and spending quality family time with my husband of 32 years, our 3 children and our grandchildren. Spending time with my family is what makes me the happiest.
