“Everything I needed to learn, I learned in kindergarten.” – Robert Fulghum

This is one of my favorite quotes because it supports my belief that kindergarten is the foundation for a child’s educational journey.

I moved to the Vail area in 2009 and was lucky enough to be hired on at Sycamore as one of the Title One teachers. I moved over to kindergarten the next year and have been teaching kindergarten ever since.

Before moving to Vail, I taught third grade, kindergarten, and was a reading intervention teacher. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my education degree in 2001. I have always wanted to teach; I love to watch kids faces light up when they learn something new. I am always amazed when I see my students progress from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. This is what motivates me to come to school everyday. I love being a teacher and a mother to two wonderful children. I look forward to working with all the students at Sycamore, present and future!
