    Welcome to 2nd Grade, Toros! I am so honored to be your 2nd grade teacher. Some of you might remember me when I taught STEM class at Tarwater. We sure did learn and have fun! We will be embracing the same joy of learning in our 2nd grade community. I'm originally from California, and I moved to the desert to grow with YOU! Please start on this page for all your 2nd grade updates.

    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 identify what they know, what they don't know, who and what they need to learn and to apply these learning skills daily and with joy.
