Ever since I stepped into my Kindergarten classroom, I knew teaching was my calling. My favorite pastime was to “play school.” I am fortunate enough to have my childhood dream become my reality. After relocating to Arizona from San Diego, I have found my home with the Chandler Unified School District. The greatest lesson that teaching has bestowed upon me is to never stop learning. I love new experiences; especially the ones I get to share with my husband and two daughters. I am looking forward to a year filled with collaboration, creativity, and growth that will inspire my students to become life-long learners who never stop asking questions!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University in 2004. In 2010, I received my Master's degree from NAU in Elementary Education in conjunction with a Reading Specialist Endorsement. I earned my Gifted Endorsement as of 2015. In 2018, I fulfilled a lifelong goal by becoming a National Board Certified Teacher.

My Educational Philosophy

I strive to inspire my students to become independent thinkers and doers; people who are unafraid to be themselves and follow their dreams, whatever they may be. I want my students to delve into their interests and take that passion to inspire others or enact change. I hope the classroom and school culture inspires them to take risks, knowing their potential has no limits, and encourage their peers to take risks too. I hope to foster a sense of belonging to my students so they know they are valued and celebrated members of our community.
