About The TeacherWelcome to Fourth Grade! I’m so excited to be returning for my third year at KTA - Sureno. I’ve been blessed with 2 wonderful careers. I originally graduated from ASU with a degree in Business Management. I owned a toy business, Brainstorms, for many years. When it came time to raise a family, I knew that I had to find a less-demanding career (little did I know what was involved in teaching!). Teaching seemed like the perfect solution. I went back to school to get my certification and haven’t regretted the change for a moment. I love teaching first grade! I am blessed with a wonderful husband and two daughters. My girls attend Kyrene de la Mariposa and will be in second and fourth grade this year. I love to swim, travel, and spend time doing anything with my family. I picked a “movie” theme for my classroom because I enjoy going to movies and, of course, I like popcorn. I’m looking forward to a fun year. There’s so much to learn in fourth grade and we are going to have a lot of fun reaching all of our learning goals. .
