Degrees and Certifications:
I am beginning my 31st year of teaching! I have been at Hampton Oaks since 2004.
I was born at Quantico, but grew up in Yuma, Arizona. I graduated from the University of
Arizona (Go Wildcats!) and taught in Tucson, Arizona until my family moved here in 2004.
I have two grown children, Valerie and Matthew. I also am the proud granny of my 6 year old granddaugher, Ainsleigh and have an adorable Boston Terrier named Tessie (you will see her picture in my classroom) and a cat named Linus.
In my spare time, I like to read, sing, cook and cheer on my Arizona Wildcats and Denver Broncos.
