Welcome to 3rd Grade, Toros! I am so honored to be your 3rd grade teacher. I'm originally from California, and I moved to the desert in 2017 to grow with YOU!
Please be sure to ask your grown up to connect to our Class Dojo by emailing me.
My Education and Professional Background
- Bachelor of Science in Business Management, 2005
- Master of Arts in Education, Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, 2008
Prior to teaching in classrooms, I worked in higher education in financial aid and academic counseling roles. I began my classroom teaching career in 2006. I have taught in elementary, junior high and high school. My teaching career has afforded me experience working within a variety of learning models including independent study, distance learning, and online learning.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe all students can learn when given a safe environment to explore, to engage, and to overcome. A safe learning environment includes my 'Big 3' for guiding how we behave toward ourselves, each other and our problems: Be Respectful; Be Responsible; Be a Problem Solver. My goal is to help students learn and to apply their knowledge daily and with joy. Applied knowledge is power!
