-Welcome to Gifted Language Arts! I am overjoyed to work alongside you this year.
My Education and Professional Background
-I am an Arizona Native, so all my education has been completed here! I graduated with a Bachelor's in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English from Arizona State University.
My Educational Philosophy
-My mission as an educator is to prepare students for their future, both academically and socially. In this class, students will be pushed to excel in their studies and encouraged to work with their peers. Students will only succeed in these areas if they are comfortable in the classroom. My role is to develop a safe space for students to learn in order to draw out their full potential.
