About Me

Welcome to 6th grade! I am so thrilled to be your Language Arts teacher this year! I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Special Education from Northern Arizona University (GO LUMBERJACKS) with a certificate in Middle Grades English Language Arts. This will be my sixth year in education. I have spent the last three years teaching special education at Highland Junior High and prior to that, I worked as a paraprofessional at Mesquite Junior. It's safe to say working with students is definitely a passion of mine. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with family and friends. I love coffee, dogs, everything winter related, mint chocolate chip ice cream and teaching awesome 6th graders like yourselves! I am looking forward to another wonderful year at Val Vista Lakes! Go Vikings!
