I am very happy to be part of the caring and accommodating staff at Sweetwater Community School! I have been over 20 years in the PVUSD, and I'm proud to have a long history of supporting students and families as a school psychologist and administrator. My door is always open to you for help with problem-solving and finding the right assistance for student success.
I am a pure-bred Arizonan, having gone to school in Cave Creek. I attended the University of Arizona where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a Bilingual Emphasis. I remained in southern Arizona and taught first and second grade ELL for two years until I moved back to the Phoenix area. For the past four years I have taught 5th and 6th graders while earning my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Arizona State University. I am excited about starting my administrative career at Sweetwater and am looking forward to working with our students.
