    Hello  Families!

       One of the cool things about being an art teacher is that I get to know so many kids! Whether you know me or this is your first year with me I look forward to getting to know you better! Here's some more info on me:

        I have been teaching in Kyrene since 1998, I have been a Milenio Falcon since 2000, and this year I am excited to join Colina's community as well. I was born in Wisconsin, but grew up here in the valley.  I received my Bachelors degree in Art Education from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.  I finished my undergraduate studies by completing my Student teaching in Germany with the Department of Defense Dependent Schools.  After I began teaching, I completed my Masters degree in Elementary Education with Northern Arizona University.  I live in Ahwatukee with my husband, my two amazing sons(Lewis and Sam).  We have two dogs, Leo and Fin.  I can't wait to see all of  you in the art room!
