Welcome to the Phoenix Community Learning Center, 
I have been teaching at the Phoenix Community Learning Center since 2000. I have a great love for the arts and specifically in theater, dance, costuming, and a make-up artistry. On my down time I enjoy spending time with my family. I have taught from grades pre-k through 8th grade and have taught a college course at Ivy Tech. 
As a primary teacher it is very important to me that we build an ongoing relationship.

Our curriculum is filled with stories that captures your students with information that will prepare them for content in future grade levels. This is brought to us from Core Knowledge which is our Language Art program - our curriculum perceives children as active learners, constantly problem-solving and encouraging their own development of the knowledge as the lessons are taught. Our math program is My Math.

The McGraw-Hill My Math Learning Solution provides an easy and flexible way to diagnose and fill gaps in understanding so that all students can meet grade-level expectations – and accelerate beyond:​

  • Strong, equitable core instruction with actionable data​
  • Best-online resources and targeted instructional strategies​
  • Personalized, student-driven learning​
You can email me at if you have any questions. You can also call me if you need to.
