Welcome to 5th grade!
My Education and Professional Background
I am a graduate of the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Elementary Education and also a graduate of the University of Phoenix with Master’s Degree with a specialization in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been teaching 5th grade since 2001. I started here at Navarrete the second year it opened. I am excited to start this new journey with your child and will provide a positive leaning environment throughout the school year.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy is 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. Every child that enters into the classroom should feel safe and comfortable. I like to provide an environment where students are nurtured and enriched. All children do not learn the same way but they are ALL able to be taught to become lifelong learners.
