|Position:||Early Childhood Special Education Teacher|
Hello and welcome to CUSD's Priority Preschool at Hancock Elementary. I am delighted to have your child in my classroom this year. This school year, your child will be exposed to a variety of new activities that foster the development of language, social skills, life and functional skills, academics and improving motor skills. Our preschool day will be filled with large group, small group and independent activities that are rich with language and foster growth in all areas of development.
My Education and Professional Background
I received my BA in Special Education from Arizona State University. I currently hold an ADE Special Education Teaching Certificate with an Early Childhood Education Endorsement. I have over 14 years of teaching experience and have been teaching in Priority Preschool since 2018.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that children learn best through positive interactions in an active learning environment that fosters development in academics, communication, social/emotional skills, adaptive skills, and motor skills. It is important to provide positive opportunities for exploration and challenging experiences to foster growth at a developmentally appropriate level for each unique child.
