This is my first year at Brookman Elementary School and I am so excited to be apart of such a wonderful team! I graduated from Las Vegas High School. I was in the PAL (Partnership at Las Vegas) program where I had the opportunity to intern at a local elementary and truly fell in love with teaching. I earned my Bachelor of Science from University of Nevada Las Vegas. When I am not teaching I enjoy baking, crafting, being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with my family. I am looking forward to a wonderful first year with the teachers, parents, and students at Brookman!

I love to teach! I can't think of anything better than being with children! This is my sixth year at Brookman Elementary School and I have cherished every minute of it!

I have been in the Clark County School District much longer since I grew up in Las Vegas! I graduated Valedictorian at Chaparral High School, received a Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University, and a Masters of Education from U.N.L.V.

When I'm not at school, I am chasing and cleaning up after my enthusiastic 1-year old...and sometimes, my husband too! :)

I enjoy reading, movies, theater, being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with my family.

I look forward to another wonderful year with the teachers, parents, and students at Brookman!

Hello parents and families! I am thrilled to be teaching at Brookman Elementary School again and I am looking forward to a very successful year! I earned my Bachelorís Degree in Child and Adolescent Development and completed the requirements for my teaching credential at California State University, Fullerton. I have spent the past 7 years teaching 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Grade and I am so excited to be teaching 4th Grade again this year at Brookman! Becoming a teacher was not only a job quest; it was my lifelong dream. I was inspired to teach at a very young age by one of my own teachers and I hope to instill a lifelong love for learning in your child! When I am not teaching, I really enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. This will be an exciting year, filled with many new adventures!
