I am an Arizona native, born in Phoenix, Arizona. I moved to Vail in 1995. I have three daughters, each who went to the Vail School District, and an amazing seven year old granddaughter. I decided to go back to school when my youngest daughter started kindergarten here at Sycamore and this is also the time I realized that my passion was teaching and being in the classroom. In May of 2013 I graduated from Northern Arizona University and became a teacher at Sycamore. I taught fourth grade for five years before becoming the Behavior Specialist and Student Services Coordinator here at Sycamore. I received my Maters in Applied Behavior Analysis in December. The Vail School District is a family I am proud to be a part of.
