Welcome to Kindergarten at Meridian Elementary! We are proud to be a 7 Habits of Happy Kids School, which focuses on leadership in the classroom, at home, and in the community. We plan our lessons on state standards and district curriculum.
This is my 31st year of teaching. I started my career in Kansas, and have been in Gilbert Public Schools since 1999. This is my second year at Meridian Elementary. Most of my experience has been in Kinder and First Grade. In addition to my Bachelor’s Degree, I also have my Master’s Degree from NAU. My passion is teaching children how to read. I have an added interest in learning everything I can to help students with Dyslexia be successful, so I have also completed 80 hours of Orton Gillingham training.
I am married, and my husband, Curtis, is also a teacher in Gilbert Public Schools. We have two grown children, and one cute little puppy. I enjoy doing crafty projects, decorating, and looking for antiques.
