Welcome to sixth grade reading. In this class, students will be challenged to read deeply into fiction and non-fiction texts and to analyze various qualities of those texts such as theme, character development, plot, and more. As students learn to analyze and respond to literature, they will also improve their communication skills and problem solving skills that will allow them to succeed in all areas of their lives.

My Education and Professional Background

Southern Nazarene University- B.S. Elementary Education; University of Central Missouri M.Ed.- Curriculum and Design This is my 11th year of teaching and my 7th year of teaching 6th grade at Arizona College Prep. I enjoy exploring reading with students and the 'aha' moments when students finally understand a concept, and I especially enjoy the relationships that I get to build with my students every year. It is my honor to be a teacher at ACP and to teach your children.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that learning is a key to unlocking doors for many people. As a teacher, it is my goal to help students learn not only basic reading skills but also how to research, communicate, and examine literature in a way that they can enable themselves to succeed in any environment that they may encounter. When students are given a challenge, they will rise to that challenge and thrive. It is my job as a teacher to empower students to rise to the challenges that they may encounter in my classroom.
