    I have been teaching in the Early Childhood Education field since 1991; first as a Home Ec teacher in the Cartwright School District and then in the Phoenix Union High School District since 2001.  Early Childhood Education is my passion, as I believe that if children are given what they need when they are young, we set them up for success in later life.  I have four children (two boys and two girls) ranging from 18 – 27 years old, and have been married to my husband, also a teacher, for 31 years.  I feel very fortunate to be able to work with the students at Cesar Chavez High School and look forward to learning together this year.

    This is my second year working with the freshmen in the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Detemination) program.  This amazing program prepares students to go to college and to be successful there.  I enjoy the enthusiasm and energy of our youngest students and look forward to watching them grow!
