    I have been teaching since 1990.  I began my career teaching for the Department of Defense schools.  I then taught in Page and Yuma before returning to my native Flagstaff.  In Flagstaff I taught at Leupp and Weitzel before coming to Knoles.

    I grew up in Flagstaff and attended Kinsey Elementary, Flagstaff Junior High, Flagstaff High School and NAU.

    I have my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Music, Masters Degree in Elementary Education and my National Board Certification in Early Childhood Education.  I hold certifications in Early Childhood, Music, ELL and reading.  Many weekends and summers I spend my time teaching workshops for teachers on Early Childhood Writing, Differentiated Education and The Common Core Standards.

    When not teaching I enjoy spending time with my dogs, knitting, reading and gardening.
