I am a California native and I grew up in the South Bay Area. I moved to Mesa in March and I am enjoying it here! I look forward to exploring and taking in the beautiful scenery and everything Arizona has to offer! My favorite things to do include watching hockey (Go LA Kings!), being outdoors and going to see a movie. I have been teaching since 1997, from the toddlers through Pre-K. Throughout my teaching career, I have had the pleasure of helping children learn and grow in so many ways. One of the greatest rewards for me is watching their development through the years and I am so proud that I was a part of it!
