I graduated from Rockford College in Rockford, Illinois with a B.S. Degree in Child Development. I received a Masters in Counseling from Arizona State University. Also, I hold a School Guidance Counselor Certificate, Gifted Endorsement, Reading/ Language Arts Endorsement, Social Studies Endorsement, Middle School Endorsement, and SEI Endorsement. I was an educator in the Tempe Elementary School District for 31 years teaching 6th and 7th grades at McKemy Middle School. I was a 6th grade CATS at Basha Elementary before joining the staff at Payne Jr. High.
Being an educator is a constant bright spot in my life and I feel very fortunate to continue my teaching career in the Chandler Unified District.
Mission: My mission is to enhance the learning environment to create within each student the desire to be a lifelong learner.
