Welcome to 5th grade! I'm so excited to be part of the Patterson community! I am a wife and a mother of two boys. I enjoy the outdoors, and especially love the sunshine and the mountains. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, drinking coffee, and spending time with friends and family. My students are an extension of family and I can't wait to build our classroom community!
My Education and Professional Background
This will be my 12th year teaching in Arizona. I earned a Bachelors Degree in education from Eastern Michigan University and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University. My previous teaching experience includes teaching 3rd grade, 4th grade, 6th grade and Gifted Education. I have a true passion for teaching and learning and I can't wait to begin this new school year!
My Educational Philosophy
Setting high expectations and creating student driven goals are key to educational success. It is the responsibility of the teacher, student, and parents, to collaborate to ensure that the students reach their maximum potential.
