My Education and Professional Background
My passion for education started many years ago. I received my Bachelor's degree from Grand Valley State University in Michigan with an emphasis on Elementary Education, and I majored in English/Language Arts. I have my Reading Specialist certification and my Master's degree from Northern Arizona University in Curriculum & Instruction.
My Educational Philosophy
In terms of my philosophy of education, it is important to know that I am intensely committed to doing all that it takes to help each student learn to their fullest potential. My goal is to help the students grow academically, socially and become life-long learners. I believe in and deliver differentiated instruction and will make learning enjoyable for every child! I absolutely love being a part of their growth and seeing their eyes light up when they learn new, exciting things! I love teaching and am very passionate about it. I feel very blessed to have these kids in my life every day and knowing that I am making a difference!
