Welcome to CTA Liberty! Wisconsin is were I was born and raised. After college, I began my teaching career in Texas, where I lived for 10 years. My husband and I moved to Arizona in 2000, and we have enjoyed raising our 2 children in Gilbert. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. Teaching students about how technology can enhance their learning is a passion of mine.
My Education and Professional Background
I received my B.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin in 1991. My teaching career began in Houston, Texas. After teaching kindergarten and first grade for 7+ years in Texas, I moved to sunny Arizona with my husband and found joy in raising my children. I could not stay away from teaching for very long. When a position opened up at CTA Liberty in 2007, I decided it was the perfect opportunity for me to share my love for teaching once again.
My Educational Philosophy
Teaching is my passion, and I hope to instill a love for learning in each and every child. Each and every child should be given the opportunity to reach their true potential. Children should not be questioned IF they can reach their goals, but instead HOW they WILL reach their goals. My job as a teacher is to help guide students to think critically and to explain their thinking in order to expand on their connections and knowledge.
