Dear Parents/ Guardians and Students
Welcome to 6th grade science at Kyrene del Pueblo. I am looking forward to a great school year and I am very excited to be your teacher. My main goal is to help you think scientifically, critically and creatively in order to problem solve and answer questions about the world around you. If you can apply these concepts and always try your best, I promise you, you will succeed!
I also teach one section of P.E. where my goal is help students improve health, muscular strength, aerobic endurance, flexibility, decrease risk of disease, decrease stress, promote socialization and cooperation, integrate body and mind, promote a positive self-image, increase academic learning, and have FUN!!!
I am from Tempe and the product of Kyrene schools, went to Corona del Sol and then on to ASU where I earned a Bachelor's in Earth and Environmental Science and a Mater's in Secondary Education. This will be my fourth year teaching and my third at Pueblo. Before that I taught 4th garde at Monte Vista Elementary in Ahwatukee and 6th grade science at Kyrene Digital Academy. Aside from teaching I enjoy hiking, golfing, traveling, coaching and hanging out with my kittens.
I'm looking forward to a great year!
