I am thrilled to be starting my twenty first year of teaching, all of which have been at Sonoran Sky.  I taught 3rd grade for 15 years, and this is my 6th year in 5th grade. I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Accounting.  I received my Masters in Elementary Education from Arizona State University.  I know we are going to have a great year.

I am so excited to be teaching at Sonoran Sky!  I was a student here beginning in 1994.  I attended the University of Arizona where I received my teaching degree.  I taught in California for two years before returning to Arizona.  I have been teaching in the Paradise Valley district for 5 years.  I am looking forward to teaching at my alma mater.
