I am a teacher and beginning my fourteenth year of teaching in Arizona’s public schools. The greatest lessons I learned were from teaching first grade for ten years. My inspirations stem from these past few years where my classroom has ranged from the Intervention Room to the Coaches’ Room.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher and a member of National Board for Professional Teaching Standards’ D.R.E.A.M. (Direct Recruitment Efforts to Attract Minorities) Team. I balance the roles of wife, mother, and professional. I am motivated by excellence in education for all students, not a chosen few.
