I am thrilled to be able to call Copper Ridge Elementary my new home! Even though I am new to the school; I have been teaching for many years. I am very excited to introduce your child to many wonderful learning adventures during the upcoming year.
My husband and I have recently moved to Tucson from Pepperell, Massachusetts, where I taught for the past 18 years. In Massachusetts I started as a Reading Teacher and then taught in a 4th grade classroom for the past 14 years. I am so fortunate to be able to have a job that I truly love! When I am not teaching school, I love spending time with my husband Art. We love traveling and visiting our 3 grown sons. I am an avid sports fan! I love my New England sports teams and I love college football! I also enjoy hiking and have already discovered many beautiful places around Tucson. I am looking forward to exploring many more amazing places, and I know I am going to love living here!
It is my goal as a teacher to foster children to be independent lifelong learners who are capable and confident. I love my job; especially when it comes to watching children realize their full potential. I am so excited to be a part of Copper Ridge Elementary Family.
