Welcome to 6th 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 6th grade again at CTA Liberty.
Personal information: 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. I met my husband in Oklahoma while attending the University of Oklahoma. We have been married since 1995 and have two amazing boys, Colin and Connor. Colin is serving in the US Coast Guard and Connor is attending ACP Middle School.
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.
