I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I have a beautiful daughter, Kendall, who was born in 2010. This year she will be starting fifth grade here at Sycamore. She has been here since preschool and we both think of Sycamore as part of our family. I love spending time with my family, reading, gardening and animals (especially cats).

In May of 2006 I graduated from the University of Arizona with a BA in Elementary Education. I started teaching kindergarten at Sycamore in July of 2006 along with tutoring some of the kindergarteners. In July of 2007 I moved up to first grade! I have been here ever since!

I believe that the students in my classroom are a family. We go through and share many experiences and learn new things together. I also believe that a person never stops learning. I am always learning new things from my daughter, students and others. I am excited for this school year! I look forward to getting to know your child and having them as part of my family!
