|Position:||6th Grade TOP|
My name is Mary Bui. This is my first year at Hartford Sylvia Encinas, but my ninth year of teaching. I am married and have two wonderful children, ages 3 and 1. I was born and raised in Chandler and love it here. In my free time I love to read, watch movies, play tennis, and spend time with family.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University in 2005. Then in 2011 completed my Masters in Educational Technology from Arizona State University. I am certified in middle school math as well. I taught fifth and sixth grade at Santan Elementary for 8 years. I have a passion for math education and believe strongly that all children can be good at math.
My Educational Philosophy
By encouraging hard work and perseverance every child will learn and grow. I will provide students an environment to explore patterns, work through engaging tasks, and to learn to work flexibly with numbers. Mistakes are valued as an important part of the learning process. Rather than just delivering the information to students, I will ask questions and guide students to construct their own understanding. Students will collaborate and share ideas often. And hopefully they will have fun along the way.
