I am an Arizona native, born and raised in Gilbert.  I went to Arizona State University. Go Devils!!  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction. I started my career working in Chandler as an instructional aide, then I became a long term sub and eventually got my first teaching job there! I have spent the last 6 years in Apache Junction, Arizona and was sad to say goodbye to my Four Peaks family.

I have an amazing family that all live here and see them as often as possible. I am the oldest of 3 kids. Sam is 23 and Kenzie is 20. They both live in Idaho and got to school there.  My mom is a retired teacher and my biggest inspiration.  I have 2 dogs, Biggie and Hazel, who take up a lot of my free time. (Yes, they are my kids!)

When I am not at school, working on school stuff or thinking about school, I love to hike, travel, cook, ride my bike, watch movies (Netflix is my best friend!), read and be with my friends and family. I also love all things Disney, I’m a big kid at heart!

I am so excited for the upcoming year and am ready to get started!  I am so excited to be at Mountain View here in Kenai, Alaska.
