Welcome to 3rd Grade! I am so very excited to be your child's teacher! I look forward to an amazing year of growth as well as creating a supportive community within our classroom. We are going to have a fantastic year!
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University in 2005 and my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from University of Phoenix in 2008. I've been teaching since 2006. I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 5th grade, and 3rd grade!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people.
