Welcome to technology!
My Education and Professional Background
I have been teaching computers since 2009. My education began with computer art and animation in 2001 and continued on to obtain a Masters in Elementary Education and a Masters in Education Leadership. My goal is to not only help make your children into computational growth-minded thinkers, but also to push for positive changes in education. I look forward to my time with Andersen Elementary and joining the Astronaut community!
My Educational Philosophy
If you say it can't be done, then you have already given up! I believe that everyone can learn new skills, but their attitude makes it possible. Putting learning into students hands is important to get practice in order to see success. In our computer lab, your children will be challenged and supported. They are held to high expectations where failing is celebrated! If we fail, it means we are trying new things, and that is what's important!
