Welcome!

First grade is a huge year of learning and growth for your child, and I am thrilled to be able to be part of it.

My Education and Professional Background

I was, also, a teacher trainer for a county in suburban Detroit, assisting teachers in developing optimal language arts instruction in their classrooms. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Central Michigan University and have my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Wayne State University in Detroit. We moved to Arizona a little over eight years ago, and love the weather.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that First grade should be taught in a safe, comfortable and caring environment. We will work together to create a community in our class where we can work together and respect one another. I intend to provide learning experiences that are exciting, challenging, and positive for every student. First grade is about academics, as well as social growth.
