Welcome to 7th grade English Language Arts!

So.. a bit about me. I was born in California, but I have lived in AZ and NM my whole life. I have 2 lovely daughters that I spend most of my time with. You can find us shopping, reading, watching movies, taking road trips, and my favorite, going to Arizona Cardinals games!

My Education and Professional Background

I attended high school at Mayfield High School in Las Cruces, NM (Go Trojans!) and I attended New Mexico State University (Go Aggies!) in Las Cruces and hold a BA in Secondary Education (certified 7-12). I have been at Santan Jr. High since 2007 where I have taught 7th grade language arts and the AVID elective.

My Educational Philosophy

I feel that students must be allowed to think critically and creatively with time for self-reflection, so in turn, they will enjoy the learning process. Every student is an individual, and it is my goal to get to know their own personal needs to help them grow and achieve. I think reading is a great way to grow as a learner. "Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body."
