Welcome to the world of 4th grade! I am so honored to be your teacher and can't wait to get to know each and every one of you. We will be going on a fun adventure together this year and I can't wait to see where we end up!

My Education and Professional Background

This will be my 4th year of teaching and I am very excited! In 2017 I graduated from Anderson University in Indiana with my bachelor's in education with a dual license in English as a Second Language and Spanish. My first two years of teaching was abroad in the Dominican Republic, where I taught 3rd grade. Last year I taught a class with 4th and 5th grade mixed in Mesa Public Schools. I can't wait to see how I grow this year teaching 4th CTA!

My Educational Philosophy

I wholeheartedly believe that each child is unique with various backgrounds, strengths, and gifts. Each child has the ability to learn and pursue their dreams from what they have been given. I believe that it is my job to help guide them to pursue that dream as well as learn from the other unique individuals in the classroom. Community within the classroom is very important so I intend for the students to not only learn from me but learn from each other. This could be through success or through mistakes. Either way, I believe that each child will grow in their education and character.
