Welcome! I am excited to be part of Hartford Sylvia Encinas Elementary as a media specialist. I have a passion for reading and helping children grow as readers.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I earned my Master of Education from Northern Arizona University along with my K-12 reading specialist endorsement. In 2008, I became a National Board Certified Teacher in literacy. I began teaching in 1994 in the Chandler Unified School District at Hartford Sylvia Encinas Elementary. In addition to being a reading specialist, I taught first grade for thirteen years during my teaching career.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe all children can learn. I strive to provide a warm, caring, positive, and engaging environment where my students are supported and challenged to reach their fullest potential. My goal as a reading specialist is to guide my students to become successful independent readers while fostering a love of reading.
