Welcome! 

This year, I am teaching 1 Block of Social Studies and Science and 2 Blocks of ELA (English Language Arts.)  I am excited to be working with the talented teachers on the 6th Grade Team!

About Me

I live on the border of Mesa and Gilbert.  My husband and I are about to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary.  We have 2 kids.  My son is 16 and my daughter is 17 and both attend High School in the Gilbert School District. I love to run, read, swim, and cook.  I also have 3 dogs -- one of them is my running partner!  We are currently training for a half marathon together!  =)

This is my 23rd year teaching school, but my 15th year at Neely.  Over the years, I've taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 5th grade, 6th grade, and I was a Title I Reading Specialist for a few years, too.  By far, 6th grade has been my favorite.  My specialty is the Spalding Method of reading, writing, spelling, and handwriting, and I integrate it in all subject areas.


I'm passionate about teaching and learning new things each and every day.  I'm excited to work with your sixth grader!
