Welcome! I am looking forward to working with each and every one of you. We will meet each challenge head on and we will continue to work together until we all achieve success.
My Education and Professional Background
Bachelors: Elementary Education - Northern Arizona University; Masters: Curriculum and Instruction - Arizona State University; Elementary School Teacher: Gilbert Unified School District 1998-2007; Property Claims Adjuster: Farmers Insurance 2007-2016; Property Claims Adjuster: American Family Insurance 2016-2018; Teacher: Chandler Unified School District 2018-Present.
My Educational Philosophy
We all have a starting point, and that starting point is where we are right now. We work together to help each other grow. We will make mistakes together. We will fail together. We will make corrections together. We will find success together. It is my job as a teacher to hold my students accountable for their failures and their successes. In my classroom, failure is not a bad word. We look forward to failing. We learn from our failures and we grow from our failures. We cannot gain knowledge if we are afraid to fail. To model this, I do not hide my failures as a teacher. I talk about them with my students and we work together to fix my failures so I can be a better teacher. Likewise, when a student fails, we work together so that they can fix their failures and grow as a student.
