Welcome!

Welcome to Second Grade at Weinberg Gifted Academy! I am so excited to be on this journey with you all! I look forward to a fun and exciting year, filled with collaboration, creativity, curiosity, and growth.

My Education and Professional Background

I am originally from Washington State. My love of reading led to a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. From there, my love of teaching and education led to a Master of Education from ASU. I was able to combine these two when I further earned my Reading Specialist Endorsement from NAU. I also have an Early Childhood Certificate, and a Structured English Immersion Endorsement. I am also currently working on my Gifted Endorsement. Beyond the credentials, teaching is my heart and soul. It is what I am, and what I love to do. I have been lucky enough to be teaching in Chandler since 1994. I have taught first, second, and third grades, and have loved them all, but second grade has always been my favorite! I have a passion for gifted learners, and I am so excited to continue this amazing adventure in second grade at WGA!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe first in building relationships with students in the classroom, and collectively with parents outside of the classroom. I like to get to know and meet each child where they are, and find out what excites them, motivates them, and encourages them to keep questioning, learning and creating in a risk-free environment. I believe in challenging each student at their own level, so they can keep growing and progressing in all emotional, social, and academic areas. I will create an environment where everyone feels safe, respected, valued, and excited to come to school each day to learn.
