Degrees and Certifications:
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary English from Brigham Young Univeristy; however, I was able to do my student teaching through my hometown college, Arizona State University. I am certified to teach in AZ, UT, and TX. I began my teaching career as a high school English teacher in Tempe, AZ.
I obtained my Masters Degree in Library and Information Science from Texas Women's University. I am certified in Library for all grade levels. My first library was Peter's Colony Elementary. I then opened Morningside Elementary, which was a great experience. I live in Denton, so the commute was considerably shortened when I transferred to Valley Ridge Elementary. We are an LISD STEM Academy and Leader In Me campus. I love this school and consider it a privilege to work here.
