Hello! I am super excited to be a part of the San Marcos family! My goal is to help all students grow and become their personal best.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Arizona State University with an ESL endorsement for grades K-12. Furthermore, I earned my Master's Degree from Northern Arizona University in Educational Leadership, and I am highly qualified to teach English Language Arts in grades 7-12.
I have been teaching in Chandler since January of 1999 and have taught kindergarten, 3rd, 5th, 6th, and junior high (7th & 8th ELA) within those years. As an ELD teacher, I am eager to work with students from various grades.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that all students are capable of greatness with the necessary effort needed to achieve their goals. My job as a teacher is to help my students realize their potential and equip them with the necessary tools to utilize throughout their lives. I look forward to bringing positive energy as I help students become well-rounded individuals. Here's to a beautiful school year!
