I am ecstatic to be returning home to Marana Middle School!  I began my career here at the Nest, and I cannot wait to continue learning with my Falcons. 

Teaching at MUSD for the duration of my career, I have served as an Instructional Technologist, Teaching and Technology Coach, and Geography teacher at MMS and Marana High School. Additionally, I was able to serve as an Associate Principal at MHS for three years. I am thrilled to be the Educational Services AP at Marana Middle!

I was born in Texas, but I have lived in Tucson since I was three. I am a proud alumna of University of Arizona with a Bachelor's Degree in History/Sociology, and I have two Master’s Degrees in Curriculum & Instruction and Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University.  

I have been married to a wonderful man and we have one fabulous son. We are a busy family that enjoys going to the lake, camping and traveling in between our crazy schedules of sports and busy social lives. 

Being able to continue to serve the Marana community, parents, and students with my love of all aspects of teaching and innovation is my honor.  The art of teaching, student learning, and education have my heart and I am excited to expand my knowledge and start this new adventure!  Go Falcons!

I am excited to join the team here at Marana Middle School!

I am originally from New York where I completed my college education and started my teaching journey. I have been in education for the last 18 years. Throughout my time as an educator I have served in different roles- teacher, instructional leader and administrator. 

I am married and I have two children. My husband and I spend most of our time at the baseball field or basketball court with our kids. We are very much a sports family and love staying active. 

I am a Marana resident and I am honored to be able to join the family here in the Marana School District. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!

I am excited that this is my ninth year as an Associate Principal, and my 18th year working at Marana Middle School! I was born and raised in Kingman, Arizona. After graduating from Kingman High School, I attended the University of Arizona where I earned a B.A. in Education with a major in History and a minor in Sociology. In 2010, I earned an M.A. in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. In 2023, I earned my endorsement in Gifted Education.

I spent two years teaching ninth and tenth-grade Geography, World History and English at Kingman High School. In 2005, I returned to Tucson and taught at Secrist Middle School. In 2006, I joined Marana Middle School.

During my tenure here, I have taught both seventh and eighth grades as well as In-School Suspension. I spent two years as the eighth grade Dean of Students and during one of those years, I served as the 21st Century After-School Programs Coordinator. Over the years, I have participated in multiple school and district-wide leadership committees.

I am incredibly excited and humbled to have the opportunity to serve as the Associate Principal of Student Services for the school that I love for another year!
