Hi! Welcome to my 2nd grade class! I am excited to have your child in my classroom and I am looking forward to a great successful year.
Let me give you a little background on me! I have been married for 12 years. I have a 22 year old step-son, 21 year old son, 2 dogs, 1 horse and 1 rabbit. I reside in Chandler with my husband and son. I graduated from Indiana State University with a Bachelors in Elementary Education in 1989. My parents had relocated in Arizona in 1987. After graduating in 1989, I moved to Arizona. I landed my first teaching job in August 1990 teaching 5th grade in Bisbee, AZ. Enjoyed the experience, but wanted to relocate in the Phoenix area. From approx. Aug.-Nov. 1991 substituting, I was offered a certified library assistant job at Neely Elementary in Gilbert. I broadened my experience in all grades K-6 teaching library skills. After the 1991-1992 school year, I was offered a 1st grade job. I taught first grade for eight years and had the opportunity to move to 2nd grade with my class. I have been teaching 2nd grade since the doors opened at Oak Tree in 1999.
