Welcome!

Welcome to Kinder CATS! This is my seventh year at KGA. I have taught every grade K-5, except for third grade, during my 19 years of teaching. In March 2014, I was Arizona’s Presidential Awardee for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. I am also a 2018 Arizona Teacher of the Year Ambassador for Excellence. I have presented my ideas about gifted education, math, engineering and technology at many national conferences.

My Education and Professional Background

I have B.A. in elementary education from the University of Iowa and a M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction and an M.Ed. in instructional leadership from Northern Arizona University. I am certified in kindergarten through eighth grade elementary education and am endorsed in early childhood, middle grade mathematics, gifted education and structured English immersion.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that learning should be fun and relevant to students. “We don’t keep reinventing the wheel because we need a new wheel. We keep reinventing it because we need new inventors.” During your child’s time in Kinder CATS, they will be able to look at a problem and brainstorm many possible solutions. They will be able to design, test and redesign what does not work. I feel that to fail is not a bad thing, so long as you learn from your mistakes and try again.
