I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and I have known since
junior high that I wanted to become a teacher. I am a proud
product of the Amphitheater School District and graduated from
Canyon del Oro High School in 1999. I attended Whitworth
College in Spokane, Washington and graduated with a BA in
Elementary Education. Upon returning to Tucson, I started my
teaching career in 3rd grade. I have taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grades
along with P.E.
Elementary P.E. is my true passion because I can share my love
for activity and nutrition with your children everyday. My goals
are: 1) show that there are a variety of ways to be physically
active, 2) eating healthy is fun, tasty, and important, 3) sports are
a great way to learn how to work with and treat others. Finally,
P.E. enables me to create positive relationships with all the
students. I hope through my teaching, the students find a way to
remain healthy and active for their entire lives.
