I grew up the oldest of seven kids and I have SIX younger brothers. Yes, six. I grew up rough-housing and watching sports of all kinds. I attended Arizona State University and I am looking forward to cheering my Sun Devils on this football season. I am a desert-dwelling girl at heart and I miss my cactus and my summer monsoon storms. This is my 4th year at Hayden Peak and my 10th year teaching. I taught 1st grade my first 4 years before getting a job to teach kindergarten. I LOVE TEACHING KINDERGARTEN! I have four beautiful children of my own. My two girls attend 5th & 3rd grade here at Hayden Peak and I have two sweet boys still at home. They are 4 and 2. My husband and I love to try new restaurants together. I love to read, color, watch movies and play and giggle with my kids. I am learning new things all the time and I spent my summer relaxing, cleaning house, finishing my basement and reading books I love Mexican food, soup, sandwiches, salads and CHOCOLATE, especially cake and cookies. My favorite thing to do is decorate for the holidays and annoy my friends and family by listening to Christmas music all year long.
