Welcome to the Russhon RAVEN class at Basha Elementary. It is my pleasure to be teaching the Gifted Cluster for Basha Elementary. We will be completing many projects, incorporating creative thinking, and striving to become lifelong learners.

My Education and Professional Background

I have a degree in elementary education and a masters in curriculum and instruction from NAU. My endorsements are for K-8 instruction, gifted education, and structured English immersion. I have also completed programs for Developing Mathematical Ideas at Mt. Holyoke, MA, Data Modeling with Vanderbilt University, CIMA program from INTEL, and an additional 24 math credits at ASU.

My Educational Philosophy

It is my deepest belief that we are all learners each moment of each day. I feel that every step we take is a learning opportunity – especially the ones that may cause us to stumble or fall. To fail is a nicely disguised gift that brings the opportunity to get up, shake off, analyze, and move on with the knowledge gained tucked neatly away for future use.
