Hello there! Welcome to my page and thank you for taking time out of your day to visit!
My Education and Professional Background
My first experience in the classroom was my role as a educational assistant in a self contained middle school class. I loved every second of it! A few years after that, I graduated from The University of New Mexico with a Bachelors of Science in Special Education. Right after that I moved to Arizona and began teaching right away. I spent my first two years teaching at a private placement school in Tempe. There, I was a middle school teacher for kiddos that struggled with behavior.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe every student should feel welcome, safe, and loved. I strive to create lessons that encourage students and make them feel unstoppable! We live in a harsh world, leaving a lot of kiddos feeling defeated, unworthy, and unsure of what they are capable of accomplishing. I want to plant a seed of hope and desire in their minds to change this way of thinking. I believe that all begins in the classroom.
