Welcome to sixth grade!! I look forward to a year full of laughter and learning! As your English Language Arts teacher, I hope to watch your love of reading grow this school year.
While I may not have taught at Mesquite Elementary very long, I am not new on campus! I attended Mesquite Elementary as a student many years ago. In fact, the classroom I teach in today was once my third grade classroom when I was a student here! I had many precious memories here and love having the opportunity to create new memories here with my students.
After my family lived here in Gilbert, we moved up to beautiful Prescott, Arizona, where I spent my junior high and high school years. I then went on to attend Grand Canyon University. (GO LOPES!) I graduated summa cum lade in 2015 with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I married my wonderful husband, Tim, in 2015, and we have two beloved pit bulls, Griffin (6) and Madison (1).
In my spare time, I can be found volunteering for One Love Pit Bull Foundation and Maricopa Animal Care & Control. I enjoy providing these animals enrichment while they are at the local shelters awaiting their forever family.
