|Position:||K-2 Specialized Classroom|
Welcome to our specialized classroom! I am very excited to have the opportunity and privilege of working together, with students and their families. I look forward to building collaborative relationships with each of you, in order to best support the individual academic, social and behavioral needs of your child.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated summa cum laude from Grand Canyon University, with a dual major and bachelor's degree in elementary and special education. This begins my eighth year working for the Chandler Unified School district. This is my second year in this current position, as the certified teacher in a specialized classroom.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy revolves around the importance of providing students with special needs with a classroom environment built on trusting, respectful and caring relationships. I value the importance of providing individual students with learning tasks that are tailored to their individual levels of ability to promote learning and growth. Teaching the whole child with academic, social emotional and behavioral supports creates a learning environment that improves student outcomes.
