My Education and Professional Background
My passion for literature and education led me to obtain my BA in Secondary Education English from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!) and I feel very fortunate to be able to bring literature to life in the classroom. I am proud to say that I am an Arizona native and a product of the Chandler School District. I look forward to giving back to the District that gave so much to me, and am thrilled to get the opportunity to celebrate literature with your student!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe the classroom should provide a safe space for students to interact with the world (past/present) using the pages of a book as their vehicle for exploration. In my classroom, literature serves as inspiration for new ideas, growth, and life lessons. I strive to create a warm classroom community where my students can safely express themselves, and embrace reading/writing, creating a lifelong passion for English.
