I am so excited I get to share your child's first grade year!

My Education and Professional Background

I am so excited I get to share your child's first grade year. I'd like to give you some background about myself. My education is vast, beginning in the 80's. I first went to college for nursing and worked in a Trauma Rehabilitation Unit, Medical/Surgical as well as nursing homes. Also, I have a B.A. in Business in Nutrition from A.S.U. My passion for teaching began in 2002 after I received my teacher certification from A.S.U. I have taught both 1st and 2nd grade since 2003. This knowledge I attained during my years of teaching led me to want to understand the administration side of how and why schools are run in the manner they are: hence, I earned my Master's degree in Administration.

My Educational Philosophy

All their new discoveries bring learning. I believe that learning needs to be fostered by a parent- teacher relationship. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you have now, when your child is transitioning to his/her new classroom, and anytime throughout the year!
