I am married with two children, CJ and Cora. I also have a pet dog named Dottie. As a family we enjoy playing games, watching movies, and swimming! Before I was a teacher and a mom I did ballet for many years and danced in a pre-professional company called Ballet Yuma. I love to dance, watch dance, and teach dance. My favorite ballet is “The Nutcracker.”
I am looking forward to a wonderful year that promotes a love of learning!
