I received an AA from Eastern Arizona College. Then, I received a BA from the University of Arizona. Finally, I received a
MA from Northern Arizona University.



I started teaching in 1983 in Duncan Schools teaching 3rd grade for 2 years. Then I went to Pima Schools teaching 2nd grade for 4 years. Then I was lucky enough to get a job in Thatcher Schools teaching 1st grade for 5 years, 2nd grade for 4 years and then I have continued teaching in 3rd grade until the present time.


I have 3 children. They are grown and on their own doing well. I am proud to have wonderful children, 5 wonderful grandchildren and 1 great grandson.

I want the parents of students in Thatcher Unified to know that I love to teach children. I try to teach them everything according to the state standards, so when they take the AZ Merit tests in the spring they will do their very best.  It is an exciting and rewarding profession. I sure appreciate the help and support of the parents. Together we can help your children learn all they can to be successful in 3rd grade. If you have any concerns or comments you can call me at the elementary school after 2:15 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. The school number is 348-7250 extension 7329. Also you can text me on my cell phone anytime (480)313-5830.
