I am a native of the great state of Arizona, married, and have adopted five children. I received my undergraduate degree at Northern Arizona University in Hotel/Restaurant Management. I was involved with the restaurant industry for more than seven years.
Then I decided that my career in life was education and went back to school to receive my certification. This is my 18th year teaching. I have taught in district, charter, and Catholic schools. My mother was an educator, and I followed in her footsteps. I love teaching and the students!!!
I believe all children can learn. They are unique individuals who need a safe, caring, and stimulating classroom to grow and mature. It is my goal for each student to do his/her personal best by providing a safe space that promotes risk-taking and sharing ideas.
I have been reintroduced to Mister Rogers after seeing the documentary about his life. It was my favorite television show as a youngster. My parents would ground me from Mister Rogers. My favorite quote from him is "there’s no person in the whole world like you, and I like you just the way you are."
