Welcome to my website! I am looking forward to working with you this school year and being apart of the Santan community. About me: I am a native to Arizona. I enjoy traveling, archery, and spending time with my dog. It is going to be a great year!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education (Biological Sciences) Summa Cum Laude. I have worked various positions with a variety of different grades at Desert Garden Montessori since 2013. Some of these positions include substitute teacher, volleyball coach, and science camp coordinator and instructor. I am excited to further share my passion for science and education.
My Educational Philosophy
Education exists to develop students into critical thinkers, life-long learners, and non-cognitive skilled individuals. It provides opportunities for learners to productively function in society with the support of the instructor, community, and peers. A teacher’s role is to ignite a fire in a leaner, to spark a passion for learning, and guide them through adolescence development. It is the learner's role to be active participants, learn to understand the material and importance of education, to be ambitious life-long learners, feel permitted to ask questions, and be task monitors; meaning responsible for his/her own quality of work, management of time, etc.
