I am so excited to be part of this journey filled with new experiences and wonderful opportunities. This will be a great year filled with lots of learning, exploring, and fun!

My Education and Professional Background

In 2008, I received a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Arizona State University, GO SUN DEVILS! I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction: Technology in 2014 from Grand Canyon University. I consider myself a lifelong learner and I am always looking for more ways to further my professional education.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe in a classroom culture that is safe and secure for all students. One where students are excited to learn and are willing to take risks. I believe in creating a positive learning environment, where mistakes are looked at as a building block in the learning process. I hope to inspire students to believe in themselves and to build upon their unique qualities that make them successful.
