Second grade is exciting  and your child will learn so much this year. I am thrilled to be spending it with your child. I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else.

About Me

I was born and raised in sunny ARIZONA. I even attended Gilbert Public Schools growing up. After high school, I attended Arizona State University and received my Bachelors of Arts in  Education. I then went on to get my masters in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. My very first teaching job was right here at Ashland Ranch! I am now in my 18th year teaching 2nd graders. 

I am married and have two amazing children. Taelor is my oldest. She graduated from NAU last May and is now going into teaching.  Gunner is my youngest. He is 17 and senior at Casteel HS in Chandler. We spend a lot  of our free time watching him play football and basketball. He recently accepted a full scholarship to play football at Washington State University so we are now HUGE COUGAR fans!  We also have an adorable 160 pound dog named Bentley.
