I am so glad to be a part of the AKCS family. This is my first year at AKCS and my first year teaching a 2/3 class but this is my 7th year teaching. I have taught middle school as well as third, forth, and fifth grade. I received my BA in Elementary Education from New Mexico Highlands University. I love teaching my students to love reading and to be passionate about our planet. Some of my passions include theater and acting, playing online video games, reading thriller novels, and taking my dog Nola for walks along the bosque. I also have a son named Aeric, who was just born in April. I look forward to a great year at AKCS and getting to know my students and their families!
