    Hello! I am so excited to be part of your educational journey. My greatest passion is working to help educate the minds of tomorrow.
    This is my third year teaching, but my first year teaching in Chandler. I look forward to an amazing year at Andersen!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Special Education from Northern Arizona University, graduating summa Cum Laude. Previously, I taught Algebra 1 and Geometry for two years at a high school in which I was a resource teacher. This is my first year teaching at a middle school, but not my first time working in one. I used to be a paraprofessional while I was working towards my degree.

    My Educational Philosophy

    My passion for teaching stems from the idea that all students should be given the opportunity to learn. All children are capable of learning no matter the background they have. I strive to support students find ways to be successful academically. My highest priority is to help children be successful by having a safe environment.
