|Position:||5th Grade DLI Math & Language Arts|
Welcome to 5th Grade at CTA-Liberty! I am so excited to be teaching your child this year! I am looking forward to a fantastic year teaching and learning right along with your child. I am an Arizona native, attended Chandler schools, and graduated from Chandler High School. I currently live in Queen Creek with my dog "Spencer." I have two wonderful sons, daughter-in-laws, and 5 totally awesome grandsons.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education from Ottawa University in 1999. In 2001, I received my Masters of Education, with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction. I currently hold endorsements in Structured English Immersion for K-12 and Early Childhood. I am a Spalding Certified Teacher and Executive Trainer. I have also been trained in Thinking Maps and Write from the Beginning. Currently, I am working on my doctoral degree because I consider myself a lifelong learner dedicated to education!
My Educational Philosophy
A teacher has a significant role in a child's development socially, emotionally, and intellectually. We, as teachers, help children succeed so they become a well-rounded citizen, which in turn, allows them to reach their greatest potential. Compassion, understanding, and adaptability is a must in order to meet students' needs.
