I have been in the teaching profession for more than 30 years, first as a paraprofessional at Greenway. I worked for over 19 years at Palominas Elementary School, Palominas till my retirement. I came out of retirement to full fill my dream of teaching at Greenway. I am currently teaching 4th grade. I team teach with Ms. Marlena Dagnino. I have taught grades from Preschool to 3rd grade. This is my 2nd year teaching 4th grade.
I am married, have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren.
Both of my children started at Greenway in Kindergarten and graduated from Bisbee High School. My husband is also a Bisbee High School graduate.
I have lived on several Native American Reservations growing up, have traveled across the United States and Puerto Rio. I have called Bisbee home for over 47 years.
I enjoy cooking, working in my flower garden, spending time with my grandchildren. I enjoy going to see them play their individuals sports: soccer, football, baseball. softball, dance, karate and wrestling. They keep me busy!
We have a cabin in the Alpine area of the White Mountains that my family and I enjoy getting away and “off the grid”! We enjoy hiking, fishing and just enjoying the beautiful nature around us.
I also enjoy singing and am a member of Bisbee Community Chorus. I was privilege to travel with the Chorus to Eastern Europe for 16 days! What an experience!
