I'm proud to be part of the Fourth Grade Team at Meridian Elementary. If you need any information about our class that isn't already available on my full teacher page, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me any time.
I was born on the East Coast, but I've called Arizona home for most of my life. And I can't imagine living anywhere else. I have four busy children of my own - two attend school at Desert Ridge Jr. High School, and two are Meridian Mustangs! Most of my evenings are spent watching them dance, or play football/volleyball.
I've spent the last 20 years in the private sector. However, teaching has always been my passion. I strongly believe classrooms should be fun, engaging, and innovative. I love to motivate students to become the absolute best versions of themselves and to find their voice.
I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a bearded dragon. Someday, I will also have a teacup pig. When I'm not grading papers, I love reading and traveling with my kids. I'm also very involved in my local church. Some of my favorite things are: Diet Coke, coffee (Starbucks...yum!), social media, laughing with friends, 70's and 80's music, watching movies, the Oxford comma, and emojis. I love anything Star Wars or Avengers. I love to shop online at Amazon, but locally, I can spend hours at Target. Blue and purple are my favorite colors.
