    Welcome to First Grade!  I am looking forward to a great year with you and your child! First Grade is wonderful year full of tremendous growth and I am excited to be your partner in education as your student grows and deepens his/her knowledge.

    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!
