Welcome to 5th Grade Math. I am the 5th grade general education math teacher. I am really excited to explore the 5th grade math curriculum and standards with you. I know it is going to be a great year.
I am a proud Gilbert, AZ native and product of Gilbert Public Schools. After attending Gilbert High School, I attended Northern Arizona University and earned my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education. A few years later, I returned to NAU and earned my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. This is my 17th year teaching in Gilbert Public Schools. I taught second grade for 13 years and now I am currently teaching 5th grade math.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy hanging out with my Pug, Carlos and spending time with my family. We enjoy trips to the beach, as well as camping in the cool pines. I also enjoy working out, shopping and trying new restaurants.
