About Me

This year will be my 5th year teaching; 2nd year at this school. I have always known that teaching was my dream career. I graduated summa cum laude from Northern Arizona University in 2012. Although I was born in Iowa I consider myself an Arizonan since I moved here when I was only 3 months old. I absolutely love my husband, three dogs, and coffee. I always have an open door policy and desire the students to create memories while learning.
