Welcome Class of 2026!
Hello 4 thGraders and Families!
We are so pleased you chose Southwest Preparatory. It will be a new and exciting year! You will be studying Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies, along with lots of technology, and exploring and learning together in our amazing Smart Lab. Weekly pullouts include Physical Education, Spanish, and Fine Arts. Our instruction approach combines traditional classroom methodologies, along with team teaching. I teach Math to the 4th and 5th graders, and Mrs. Mora will be the Language Arts instructor for those grades. We also work with our 6th grade teachers for our Fine Arts rotations, so students will have several teachers this year!
I have been teaching since 2003, and have taught 1st and 4th grade, and children with severe needs.
Teaching is my passion! I am a continual learner of new teaching methods and ways to engage and challenge students. Working with parents as our partners, our goals are to help students:
- Attain high academic achievement
- Develop a positive sense of self
- Cultivate a love of learning
- Be kind and model good citizenship
My hubby and I have three boys: my oldest is going into the Air Force, my middle son is in college pursuing his teaching degree, and my youngest is a senior at Southwest Secondary. We have two Golden Retrievers and a little black kitty. We love getting outdoors, watching football, and family dinners together! I can’t wait to get to know you and your families.

It’s going to be a great year. Welcome again, and please let me know if you ever have questions, comments, or concerns. We are here for you!
