Welcome! 

Welcome to 5th grade! I am your 5th grade Science teacher. Get ready to blast off, because we will be spending the majority of the year learning about space!

About Me

I have always loved school. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies from the University of Richmond, Virginia. I was also lucky enough to study for a semester in Moscow, Russia. That is where I learned to speak Russian. After my kids went to school, I went back to ASU and got my Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I absolutely love being a teacher. I love getting to know my students and going on their learning adventure with them! 

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, knitting, crocheting, painting, reading, going to the movies and singing. My daughter, Hannah, is a Freshman at NAU and my son, Michael, is a Junior at GPS Global Academy. My husband, Chuck, is the Chief Financial Officer for MW Mounts, which means he spends a lot of time looking at numbers and budgets! I also have 5 dogs, 2 rats and 2 cats, who I love like my own children! You will hear all about the trouble they get into.
