I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and I knew since junior high that I wanted to become a teacher. I am a proud product of the Amphitheater School District and graduated from Canyon del Oro High School in 1999. I then attended Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington and graduated with a BA in Elementary Education. Upon returning to Tucson, I started teaching 3rd grade. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades along with P.E.
Elementary P.E. is my true passion since I can share my love for activity and nutrition with your children everyday. My goals are to show my students that there are a variety of ways to be physically active and all are important, that eating healthy is fun, tasty, and important, and that sports are a great way to learn the correct way to work with and treat others. P.E. also enables me to create positive relationships with all the students in the school (another bonus). I hope through my teaching, the students find a way to remain healthy for their lives.
