A bit about me:

I came to teach first grade at Osuna in 2015 after 16 years teaching kindergarten at another APS school. I've also taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders in my teaching career, but right now, "firsties" are my favorite! I grew up in Albuquerque and attended all APS schools before getting my Bachelor of Science degree and Master of Science degree at UNM. My husband and I are proud parents of three great boys and spend a great deal of our time involved with their activities. Our youngest attends Osuna, our high-schooler is a K-5 Osuna graduate, and our oldest lives in California. We enjoy our Osuna community and I am privileged to be a part of the staff here as well. It is my sincere hope that your first grader and your family will feel that same sense of belonging here at Osuna and I'm looking forward to an awesome year!!

Please feel free to email me with any questions you have throughout the year:
