Hello and welcome to 5th grade at Navarrete.
My Education and Professional Background
I attended California State University at Fullerton and earned a bachelor's degree in Communication. I also attended University of Phoenix where I earned my master's degree in Elementary Education.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy is simply that all children have the ability and the willingness to learn. It is my job as the teacher to teach them to want to learn and to teach them how learning is fun. All children do not learn the same way but they are ALL able to be taught to become lifelong learners. Life's best lessons do not come from a book, but from the acts of doing and experiencing.
