As a resident of Mesa, Arizona for over twenty years, and mother of four, I am currently earning my B.A. degree from Arizona State University’s, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College; I plan to graduate in the spring of 2013.  I previously attended Chandler-Gilbert Community College earning my Associates in General Studies and Associate in Arts.    I previously spent my early years working at engineering firms in So. Calif. as office support .  While raising my children I changed my focus to early childhood opportunities by volunteering at my children’s school.  I later worked in a Pre-K classroom for three years and children’s club for eight+ years, where I performed as an crew leader and  arts and craft instructor.  Later I taught Sunday school for three years, this involvement with children has confirmed my desire to move ahead and attain my degree in Early Childhood Education.  I now look forward to working in an occupation that I love.  I also enjoy the outdoors and spending time with my family.
