Welcome to 3rd grade
My Education and Professional Background
In 2019, I became a Spalding Certified Instructor. In 2009, I earned my master’s degree from Northern Arizona University in Curriculum and Instruction. That same year I became a Spalding Certified Teacher. In 2001, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with and ELL endorsement. I began my teaching career in 4th grade in the Gilbert School District, the I transferred to CTA Independence in 2006 when it opened. I transferred to CTA Freedom to be closer to home. I taught 3rd and 6th grade there, then had the opportunity to move my son to the DLI program here at Liberty. I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade again at CTA Liberty. I was born in Texas but spent most of my elementary education years moving since my family liked traveling and new adventures. I moved from Texas to California to Colorado, and Rhode Island, finally settling in Oklahoma.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which to grow intellectually and socially. Students will reach high expectations when they are given support, encouragement, and genuine feedback and praise.
