My Bio

This is my first year teaching full-time at San Tan Charter School and I am extremely exited to join this amazing group of educators! My background has always been centered around children of all ages. I believe that everchild is precious and a gift. Bringing out the special qualities of each child, appreciating them, and giving them the tools and the confidence they need to succeed is my passion in life

In 1998, I was a Family Teacher at Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska. There, I lived with and raised a total of over sixty teenage boys who came from severely abandoned, abused, and neglected backgrounds. After working at Boys Town, I co-founded a non-profit organization in San Marcos, California, helping to house children who could not live in the foster care system. 

I was blessed to be able to spend 16 years as a stay-at-home Mom for my 11 children. I home schooled my youngest 3 children for preschool and absolutely loved it. Since then, I have worked at my church Preschool and Daycare, as well as a Guest Teacher at San Tan Charter School.
