 Welcome to Room 205
I am excited to be teaching such a great group of kids this year.  Fourth grade is a big transition from the previous grade and some students might feel overwhelmed.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me.  It takes a partnership with both parents and teacher to make their education successful!!

I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I got my first teaching job with the Fowler District in 1988. Twenty nine years later I remain teaching in the same district I love.   I am a U of A Wildcat with my Teaching Degree and an ASU Devil with my Master's Degree.   I am also endorsed in Early Childhood and English as a Second Language.  I have been married 26 years to my best friend Vito. Together we have 2 amazing boys who continue to make us proud parents.   My oldest son is getting married in September and is working on his MBA in South Dakota. My youngest is a junior at South Dakota State and plays offensive center in football.  He is working on a degree in Cyber Technology.  My passion and hobbies are my many animal pets both at home and in the classroom:  2 dogs, 5 cats, 3 snakes, 3 tortoise, 2 guinea pigs, 2 toad, and many fish.  I plan on retiring in 2018 and moving to Sioux Fall, South Dakota.
