Hello and welcome to my webpage. My name is Ms. Jimenez. I live in Gilbert and have raised two daughters. My daughter Miree graduated from ASU and works for a marketing firm in Tempe. My other daughter, Nicole also graduated from ASU and just left Arizona to do research in microbiology at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Although, I've lived in the East Valley for almost 40 years, I was born and raised in Glendale, AZ, where I have lots of relatives.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University in Elementary Education many years ago. I have an Early Childhood Endorsement as well as an SEI Endorsement. This is my 32nd year teaching in the Chandler School District. I have taught Kindergarten, first and second grade. I became a teacher because many years ago, I was inspired by a wonderful Kindergarten teacher named Mrs. Fitch. As one of her student helpers, she had a classroom that was lively, positive and a great place for learning.

My Educational Philosophy

My philosophy of education is to challenge students to grow to their full potential. I want to give them the tools and information to help them nurture and become lifelong learners. The classroom should be a place that is safe and welcoming environment; where the entire child can develop as a responsible and productive individual. I also believe that the school is where parents, students, teachers as well as the community can come together to form an encouraging learning place.
