Welcome! 
Hello and welcome to kindergarten at Houston Elementary! This year we will read, write, build, experiment, sing, laugh, share, count, play, explore, measure, explain, wonder, discover, and learn! I am very excited about the new school year. We are going to have an awesome year of learning!


About Me
I am very excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher! It is my mission to build on your child's strengths while instilling a love for learning. My classroom is a nurturing environment in which your child will feel successful and proud! 

I have been teaching kindergarten for 11 years. I taught for 4 years at Granada Primary in Phoenix and 7 years at Children First Academy in Tempe. This is my first year at Houston. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood. Then I received a Master's degree from Northern Arizona University in 2008 in Elementary Education, and in 2010 in Early Childhood with an emphasis in teaching English as a Second Language, and then a Master's degree from Arizona State University in 2013 in Teaching and Instruction with an emphasis on Gifted Education.

I am originally from Southern California, but moved to Arizona in 1998. I have a 4 year old son, whom I adopted from Ethiopia as a 9 month old. I enjoy spending time with him and my family and friends. I like to travel as much as I am able to, and read and watch movies in my free time. I am very excited to be here at Houston and I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child!
