About Me: I am an Arizona native, however did spend my college years in Oklahoma.  My husband and I have been married for 10 years.  We have 3 sons and a dog to keep us busy!  At our house we enjoy sports, cars, and swimming.

Background: I have been teaching at Dream City (formerly Joy) for 13 years.  Most of those years have been teaching 1st grade!  I went to school at the University of Oklahoma where I completed my bachelors degree in Elementary Education and then my masters degree in Reading Education.

I have been teaching for 13 years.  I’ve taught 1st grade and 4th grade.  Being in an elementary classroom, I have taught all subject areas.  I love being able to connect all of our subject areas throughout the day, especially relating everything back to our Bible truths.

How did you start teaching: I have always loved working with children.  I started at a young age helping my mom during the summers work camps with young children. When I was old enough, I started teaching gymnastics classes and working summer camps.  I always loved school and appreciated all that my teachers did for me.  I knew I wanted to work with children, to help them learn, and to create an environment where they love to come each day!

Favorite Subjects: I loved math when I was a student. I love to teach science and social studies.

Favorite Bible Verse: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. ~ Matthew 5:16

Fun Fact: I started gymnastics at age 8 and earned a full ride gymnastics scholarship to the University of Oklahoma.
