About Mrs. Carrie...
Hello! I am an Arizona native and grew up the in the northwest part of the valley. My husband, Lee, and I moved to Chandler in 1998.

My Educational Philosophy
I believe the main goal of teaching is to foster a love of learning. Learning takes place in many different circumstances and contexts. Everyone is capable of learning, but a student's desire to learn is a vital to effectively mastering new concepts and skills. My job as a teacher is to create an environment that fosters and inspires learning. I am a teacher because I have a passion for guiding students through the learning process, in addition to a passion for the material presented in the fifth grade curriculum.
