Hello Bologna families!
I am excited to be part of the Bologna Elementary community!
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Bachelors degree from Arizona State University (GO DEVILS!) and earned my Masters degree from Northern Arizona University. I have been teaching full time since 1998 and have been in the Chandler District all of my years. I am so happy to be back teaching 2nd graders, after teaching 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders over the years.
I hold Endorsements in Early Childhood Education and Structured English Immersion. I am currently working towards my Spanish/Bilingual Endorsement for Spanish-speaking classroom teachers.
My Educational Philosophy
My belief is that all students are bright in their own unique way. I instill a GROWTH MINDSET in every one of my students and celebrate even the little successes. I believe that every student has the potential to succeed in school and life with the proper adult support that they need. I believe that teacher and parents should support the student equally.
