Hello WGA families! I am honored to be part of this wonderful community. I will be teaching 1st grade this year. I was born and raised in Arizona and wouldn’t have it any other way! Most of my family lives here and I am very close with them! I love being active both indoors and outdoors, reading, taking day trips, and spending time with family and friends!

My Education and Professional Background

I have been teaching since 2010. However, I have had a love and appreciation for children long before then! I have experience teaching first, second, and fourth grade. I spent most of my years teaching in first grade and that is where I find myself again! I graduated with my Masters in Elementary Education from Arizona State University (go Sun Devils!).

My Educational Philosophy

I wholeheartedly believe education is one of the most important and precious aspects of growth and development for a child. Not only is it to teach student’s knowledge, but it is equally as important to teach children life skills. As a teacher I help children develop social skills, self-esteem, integrity, responsibility, and problem-solving skills. I believe ALL students can learn and are capable of learning. Teachers should create a classroom community where every child feels safe, respected, and able to be independent thinkers. Watching a child take risks and be an active part in their learning is one of the greatest rewards as a teacher! I plan to encourage the passion of being a lifelong learner in every child!
