Welcome to second grade! This year we will work hard, challenge ourselves, and learn to believe in the power of yet. I look forward to working as a team with students and families in order to help each child reach their full potential. While we will certainly work hard, we will also laugh daily and have lots of fun along the way!
My Education and Professional Background
Mrs. Nettles first began teaching with CUSD in 2002. She holds a bachelor's degree in elementary education from ASU and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction from NAU. Mrs. Nettles has taught children in grades 2-6 with CUSD. In addition, she has taught college level courses including Child Development, Cultural Diversity in Education, Curriculum and Instruction, and Achieving Academic Success for the Maricopa Community College District.
My Educational Philosophy
It is my mission to help each student experience success by guiding them to doors they may have not yet discovered and providing them with the tools necessary to open those doors. While we focus on academics, I also place major emphasis on character building in our classroom. I have high expectations for students both academically and socially and I'm also willing to do what it takes to help them meet these goals. Mistakes along the way are not only accepted but encouraged as they prove that students are stepping outside of their comfort zone and willing to face a challenge.
