Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mesa and 5th grade! Fifth grade is an exciting year filled with all sorts of learning and new experiences. This is my second year at Mesa and my eleventh year as a fifth grade classroom teacher. Prior to that, I worked in Special Education for four years. When I was in 2nd grade, my family moved to the Fountain area after my father got out of the Air Force. Here I stayed, until I married a military man and left the area for ten years. I graduated from Regis University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and am currently a graduate student at Arizona State University majoring in Curriculum and Education: Gifted Education. I enjoy spending time with my husband, two dogs, and two cats. Our family consist of six adult children, their spouses/significant others, and five grandchildren. During the summer we love to travel the United States and reconnect with our family.
