Welcome to 3rd Grade!! I am so very excited to be teaching your children at our school. I look forward to an amazing year of growth as well as creating a kind and supportive community within our classroom. We are going to have a GREAT year!
My Education and Professional Background
I attended Arizona State University where I received my BA in Elementary Education in 2008. I went on to get my Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Northern Arizona University in 2011. I love being a student almost as much as I love being a teacher and am excited to instill that love of learning in my students. I have had the opportunity of being Team Lead Teacher, Mentor Teacher to new teachers, and involved in many other committees and clubs to better educational needs.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. Learning is a lifelong adventure that includes much more than academics. My hope is that my passion for teaching will ignite a passion for learning in my students. I believe that a strong partnership between home and school will produce the most effective impact on our learners. We can work together to provide the best education possible and help your child blossom and succeed.
