All About Me

I am so excited to begin my 19th year as a Madison teacher!
I have been teaching in the Madison School District since 2000. I currently hold a Masters' Degree in Elementary Education, specializing in Curriculum and Instruction. I am to announce that I am now certified as a Middle School Science Teacher! I began my career teaching ALL subjects in 4th Grade at Madison Simis, where my children Ali and Ryan also attended. I was then a Math and Science teacher at Madison Number One from the Fall of 2004 until Spring of 2016. 

My amazing kids are now all grown up! Ali is in her THIRD year of Medical School at Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine in Las Cruces, New Mexico. She is on rotations this year in the Oro Valley area of Tucson, so she is closer to home! My 22 year old son Ryan graduated from the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Gilbert, is now a broadcast technician at "The Switch" in Los Angeles.
I am very excited to once again be teaching 5th and 6th Grade Science at Madison Traditional Academy. It's such a wonderful opportunity to "loop" with the same students as they grow. I also teach Computer Science (Coding) as an elective. I participated in a week long workshop at GCU this summer, so I'm prepared to take the students ever futher.  I'm very glad to begin my THIRD year at MTA!
