Grade: Guidance Counselor

Email: [email protected]



I began my career as a kindergarten paraprofessional 13 years ago here at Hollywood. In May of 2014, I received a dual degree in Elementary and Special Education graduating Summa Cum Laude from Grand Canyon University. I was absolutely thrilled when I was offered the job of teaching science, social studies, and writing for our second graders!!! I have adored working with the young children and have been privileged to assist and learn from exceptional teachers in the classrooms here at Hollywood Elementary School. Now, I am ecstatic to be serving our students as their guidance counselor.

I am the daughter of a retired school teacher and have always felt it was “in my blood” to spend my days making a difference in the lives of children. I must admit that I am truly one of those teachers that looks forward to work each morning because I get to spend the day instructing and learning from my phenomenal students. I will be going into the classrooms monthly to provide quality character education to all of our students.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my children Kaylee (17), Drayton (14) and MaciePaige (9) doing anything outdoors!!!!  I also enjoy reading, traveling, and searching for neat projects on Pinterest.   :O)
