Howdy, ya'll. I was born and raised in North Little Rock, Arkansas, as if you couldn't tell! I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a BSE in 1989 and a MSE in Reading Instruction in 1991. I have two sons, ages 17 and 15, and one daughter, age 7. I taught elementary school for 15 years in the North Little Rock School District. Then we moved to Okinawa, Japan from 2006 until 2010 whereupon we relocated to Rancho Sahuarita. I taught school for the last 2 years of our residency in Japan and loved every minute of it!
I began my career here at Anza Trail School just last year and found I really enjoyed the 4th graders. They are mature enough to work independently and get my corny jokes but still caring and willing to please. I hope this year will be an extra special educational experience for your child and look forward to working with you to achieve this goal.
