Welcome to 5th Grade! Fifth graders will be engaged in many new and exciting learning experiences this year as well as creating a supportive community within our classroom. I look forward to an AMAZING year teaching your children.
My Education and Professional Background
I have always wanted to be a teacher and I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University in 2004. I earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University in 2006. I began my career teaching fifth grade in 2004 and have had the pleasure to teach in Chandler since 2008. First, third, and fifth grade are the grade levels I have taught. I have spent the most time teaching fifth graders and I love it!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe the classroom community should be a place which emphasizes the dignity of human beings and the development of one's talents while student learn to be responsible citizens. I believe all students can learn and they bring unique characteristics to the classroom community. I expect my students to accomplish their personal best in all they do. The teacher, student, and parents are a team. A strong partnership between the home and school will provide the best recipe for success. I look forward to getting to know my students and their families!
