Welcome to Second Grade! This school year will be one of excitement, energy, discovery, learning and most of all – FUN!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Gilbert High. I received my Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Science from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas and my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University. I have been teaching at Santan Elementary since 2005.

My Educational Philosophy

I feel strongly that our children need to be prepared for the future. They must be willing to take risks and rise above the minimum expectations while furthering their knowledge. It is the job of teachers and parents to model, encourage, set high expectations, and praise students through the learning process. I am looking forward to working with your children and you, the parents, to provide a great learning experience for the students, one that will stay with them throughout their education. I understand the importance of a good education and will give my best to provide each child that opportunity. I am dedicated to providing a safe, healthy environment in which your children will be able to learn and succeed while being cherished and praised as they take risks.
