This 2020-2021 school year marks my second year teaching at Midway Elementary. I'm thankful for the chance to work at such an outstanding school and to be a part of the Midway community.
I started my career 22 years ago in California. I taught first grade for six years in Arcadia. I then moved to Gilbert, Arizona. For 11 of the 14 years I lived in Arizona, I taught in the Tempe Elementary District. There I taught first and second grade and spent many of those years focused on teaching ELL students. I then had an opportunity to teach closer to where I was living, so I took a position teaching fifth grade in the Gilbert District. After teaching in Gilbert for three years, I made another change. I have family in this area and over the course of various visits, I fell in love with this valley, and the rest is history!
I have degrees and certifications that have helped me in the progression of this career, but what really matters to me (and hopefully to you) is that I still love this job and feel fortunate that I followed the path I did all those years ago.
