Welcome! I am excited to have your child in my room and look forward to working together with you to ensure it is a fun and successful year.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Arizona State University. I also received a Master’s degrees in Bilingual/Multicultural Education and Administrations from Northern Arizona University. I hold a reading and ESL endorsement and am highly qualified in Science. I began teaching in Tempe and moved to Chandler Unified in 2008.
My Educational Philosophy
I will provide an inviting environment that makes it possible for all students to learn. They will be motivated and encouraged to take risks and learn from their mistakes. All students are unique and bring their own experiences to situations. I need to be perceptive and caring enough to really know my students. It is my responsibility to discover their individual strengthens as well as their needs. I can then focus on these strengths and help students use them to their best advantage. It is important for me to be flexible and consistently monitor the learning environment. I will adjust my teaching to maximize the learning of every student. Most importantly, I understand that in order to be a great teacher, I must continue to be an active learner.
