  • Welcome Students and Parents!

    Welcome to Desert Edge! School is kicking into full gear as students are transitioning into another year of high school filled with high expectations and a caring environment! This will be another year focused on every student’s achievement of college and career readiness.
    I would like to take this opportunity to share a little bit about myself.   I am a 4th generation native to Arizona.  I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Elementary Education and have a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University.   I have been at Desert Edge for one year, although I have 16 years of teaching experience in elementary and middle school levels.   I have been married for 26 years and have two great sons that graduated from Verrado High School.  My interests include anything that has to do with being outside.  I love camping, hiking, boating, and driving UTVs.  Just recently, I started cycling and have even competed in a few triathlons. 

    Desert Edge offers an enriching and rigorous curriculum that is not only relevant to the students’ experiences but also inspires a lifelong learning process so that students take an active role in and ownership of their learning. I also hope to develop a personal, positive relationship with your student in hopes to nurture him or her to achieve their highest potential.

    I am excited to have your child in class and look forward to a fun and rewarding year!
