Welcome! 

Welcome to my 5th grade ELA class. I look forward to a great year with your child and am so excited to be teaching my favorite subject this year. Communication is so important, so please do not hesitate to contact me at any time throughout the year. Here's to a great year in 5th grade!

About Me

I have been teaching 5th grade at Pioneer for 17 years.  I love 5th graders!  I grew up in Iowa and graduated from Iowa State University.  I moved to Arizona soon after that.  I have a Master's degree from ASU.  I am married and I have two teenage daughters.  Kendal is attending CGCC this year, and Keegan is a junior at Campo Verde High School.  I am lucky to work at the best school in Gilbert!
