My Message

Hi! I am a proud member of the Laveen community. I have lived here with my husband for more than a decade. We have one son who we love exploring and dancing with. Our family is complete with two dogs, Chalupa and Bullseye. I have been in education for many years as a teacher, instructional coach, education consultant and trainer. I have been dedicated to improving the language skills of my students, modifying curriculum for individual students’ needs, and increasing parental involvement. For three years I have traveled the country working with pre-kindergarten to high school teachers improving reading comprehension, instructional practices, and increasing oral and written language skills. I love the process of learning and growing. I am excited to be part of the Sun Valley Academy family.
