My class consists of kindergarten and first grade students. We have a small group of students and put a strong emphasis on positive behavioral interventions as well as academics. We strive to have our students become the best students possible and achieve at a high level.
I was born and raised in a small town located an hour outside of Atlanta, Georgia. I graduated in 1983 from Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama with a B.S. in Psychology. I spent many years working as a case manager and care coordinator in Georgia, Germany, and Pennsylvania. Upon moving to Arizona, I enrolled in and completed the teacher certification program through Rio Salado College. This is my eleventh year serving as the primary COPE teacher here at Settler's Point Elementary.
