Welcome to kindergarten! I am looking forward to a great year of learning and celebrating student accomplishments.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Central Washington University in 1995 specializing in both elementary and special education. I received my Master's from Northern Arizona University in bilingual / multicultural education with and emphasis in English as a Second Language (ESL).

My Educational Philosophy

My goal is to provide students with a safe learning environment in which they can become life long learners. I use formal and informal assessments along with highly engaging lessons to ensure the success of all students. I combine individual strengths with a well structured, cooperative learning environment to foster student independence and celebrate your child's love of learning.
