Montessori 1st-3rd Grade Teacher

My Bio

This will be my sixth year at San Tan.  I spent four years as an Assistant in the Lower Elementary class with Ms. DeWyke, and this last year as a co-teacher with Ms. Hinch.   I look forward to having my own classroom this year, with Ms. Hatch as my assistant.

I have three boys, and this is our 10th year as a STCS family.  My boys will be in 5th grade, 6th grade, and my oldest just graduated. When they were younger, I spent countless hours volunteering at our school. Prior to having children, I worked in the corporate world for many years, most recently as a Corporate Training Manager.  However, my dream was always to be a teacher.  I love interacting with and building relationships with children.  I have a gift for helping children find their talents and building in them the confidence to pursue those talents.

I recently completed my Lower Elementary certification through North American Montessori Center and look forward to implementing what I learned in my own classroom.  I grew up in a small town in Southwestern Colorado and while I do miss the mountains and seasons, I appreciate the beauty of the Arizona desert and sunsets.  My favorite things to do are spending time with my boys, camping, fishing, reading, baking and taking road trips.
