A little bit about the teacher...


This is my 5th year teaching at Estrella Mountain Elementary and my 12th year teaching science to high school and middle school students.  I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my B.S in Zoology and my M.ed in Secondary Education, science teaching.  Currently, I am the 8th grade, 8th grade Honors and 2 sections of 7th grade, science teacher, head coach of our State Science Olympiad Division B team, sponsor of the National Junior Honor Society, coordinator of the 8th grade IB Community project and main contact for the Catalina Island 8th grade trip and 7th grade Astro Camp trip.  I am a wife and mother of 3 handsome boys and we are residents of Estrella Mountain Ranch Community.  
EMES IS my home.
       I am a lover of many things. Being outdoors and an appreciation of our Earth are very dear to me.  My husband and I are huge football fans, with a house divided.  With my family from Buffalo and his from Pittsburgh, but both of us born and raised here, we tend to have many teams we enjoy rooting for.  We are also avid baseball fans and the Diamondbacks are our team!   I love crafting- in fact, I co-own and operate a small business in my spare time for woodworking and custom painting.  My older boys are active and love to be outdoors.  Gavin (7) plays in EYS sports and attends 2nd grade here at EMES and Dylan (4) is growing so fast, playng soccer and baseball and attending the local preschool.  Our newest addition, Jaxon, is 5 months old already and as sweetheart.  He sure is a mama's boy.   They love to come with mommy to school so I am sure you will see them.
