Welcome to fourth grade! I am so excited to be a part of the Patterson Pride this year! I am looking forward to getting to know your family and having a fun year!
My Education and Professional Background
I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education at the University of Arizona in 2013 and my master’s degree in 2017 at Northern Arizona University. I also have a teaching endorsement in gifted education. I have previously taught for six years in the Cartwright School District. In Cartwright, I spent five years teaching in a gifted cluster fourth grade classroom and one year in a fifth grade gifted classroom. I am excited to begin my seventh year of teaching!
My Educational Philosophy
Students in my classroom are encouraged to learn from their mistakes, take risks, and have a growth mindset. I also help students develop collaboration skills so that they are able to successfully work with their peers. My goal is to create a safe and respectful environment in which students are able to reach their full potential.
