This year will be my 18th year of teaching and I am thrilled that it will be at Puster Elementary teaching 3rd grade! I taught two years at Lovejoy Elementary teaching 1st grade and prior to that taught 2nd grade in Arizona. My husband, Jonathan, and I moved to Lucas about thirteen years ago. We have been married for eleven years and we have two daughters, Nora, who is five and Paige who is two.
In 2004, I received my Masters Degree in Administration and Supervision from Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. Prior to Arizona State, I went to The University of Massachusetts, Amherst where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and Sociology. I was a collegiate athlete (swam) in college for all four years. Athletics is a big part of my life!
Before college I lived with my family in Buffalo, New York. Most of my extended family still lives there. I have two sisters, one older and one younger.
When not teaching, I really enjoy traveling, watching sports, reading and swimming. My husband and I get to travel a lot due to the fact that our families live all over the world. Our daughters have become great little travelers! We also LOVE football. My favorite team is the Buffalo Bills (not very popular here in Cowboy country) and I watch them every Sunday win or lose-normally they are losing!
I am very excited to be a part of the Puster team. It is going to be a wonderful year!
