I have been teaching second grade for 10 years...second graders are THE BEST!! I am a product of this school district having gone to PDS, Sierra Vista Middle, and Buena High School. After high school I went to NAU and graduated in 1999 with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. While there I met my husband and we married in 2000. We now have 3 children; Connor- entering 3rd Grade, Kyleigh-2nd Grade and in my class this year :), and our youngest, Caden who will be 2 in November. I recieved my Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy in 2008 and my National Board Certification in November of 2009. I am so excited to work with your child!
WE are a BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL!! Yay!!! I am so proud and lucky to have taught at such a great school for the past 8 years. There were only 4 chosen in the entire state. Here is the official notification listing us on the Department of Ed website. The Herald had an article on us in today's paper. I am so excited to represent PDS at the recognition ceremony in DC in November. Go Dustdevils! :)
