This is my fourth year in Higley. I spent the first two years teaching in the Brilliant Beginnings classroom. This is my second year to be the TOSA for our preschools . TOSA is Teacher On Special Assignment. My assignment is to assist our director, Mrs. Gleason, as well as support our office staff, families, teachers and students. I am so exited and honored to be in this position! You will find me at Sossaman on Mondays and Tuesdays and Cooley on Wednesdays and Thursdays (and one or the other on Fridays).
I have a Master’s in Education from ASU. I taught Amanecer Preschool in the Gilbert Public Schools for 9 years and before that, I taught at a local private preschool. I am blessed with a patient husband and eight children (four children and four stepchildren) between the ages of 21 and 29 and four handsome grandsons and two beautiful granddaughters (with two more on their way -yikes!!)! I like to read, travel the internet or knit when I can find the time.
I encourage your suggestions and I think that it is important for children to see parents take an active interest in their school work.
If there is anything I can do to make help your child be successful, please contact me.
Thank you again for sharing your precious children with us!
