My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University in 2012. I received my master's degree in Social Work from the University of New England in 2017. I hold an Associate License through the Arizona Board of Behavior Health and a School Social Work Certificate with Arizona Department of Education. I have previous experience working with children in residential care as well as providing counseling to children and families in the behavior health field. In 2018 I began with Chandler Unified School District as a school social worker.
My Educational Philosophy
Our students succeed when they feel safe and valued in their environment, and I hope to continue to foster this culture here at Sanborn. I believe each student deserves to be seen, heard, and accepted in the fullness of who they are. My person-centered approach emphasizes building positive and trusting relationships with students and families. I also utilize a trauma informed lens to bridge gaps and minimize barriers impacting our students' success. With attention towards social emotional skills and mental wellness, students can leave Sanborn as well-rounded humans, capable of navigating whatever comes next!
