Teacher Bio

This is my 16th year teaching here in the Laveen Elementary School District, and Estrella Foothills is my third campus in the district (last six at Trailside, and first nine at Laveen)

Prior to moving to Arizona, I grew up in Michigan and attended Michigan State University. I continued my education through Northern Arizona University’s distance Master’s Program.

As the fifth grade’s English Language Arts,  it might not surprise you that my hobbies include traveling to historic places or reading. I’m constantly on the move and that has resulted in me taking on the hobby of running races (half marathons where and when I can).   When not traveling, running or buried in a book, I avidly volunteer out in the community.
