Hello Adcock Eagles! I am so happy to be part of this staff and community! I moved to Las Vegas in 1998 from Washington state after obtaining my Bachelor’s in Education from Eastern Washington University. I taught first and second grade for seven years, and during that time I attended UNLV where I got a Master’s Degree in Library Science. I was then lucky enough to open a new school as the Librarian and I remained at that school for the next twelve years. I have endorsements in STEM, TESL and GATE, and am now using my GATE endorsement to teach my wonderful students here at Adcock. Being a GATE Specialist is something I am very blessed and honored to be doing. I love waking up each morning knowing that my students will be walking into my room full of curiosity and a love of learning. We strive to “think outside the box” in GATE and have so much fun with our project based learning units!
