I received my Bachelors of Arts degree from ASU in 1990 and Masters degree from NAU in 2001. I have been teaching in the district since 1993. I have a love of learning and passion for teaching others how to work with young children. So by teaching here at GHS, I am living my dream. Besides being an Early Childhood educator, I am also the director of the TOYBOX Early Learning Center and Dept. Chair for the FACS and Business departments. It brings me great joy to work with the amazing staff and student body here at GHS!
