Welcome to fifth grade at Riggs Elementary! You will absolutely love Riggs! We have the best bunch of students, parents, and staff around!

My Education and Professional Background

I love teaching 5th grade! I have been in the Chandler School District since 2000 and have taught 5th grade since I started teaching! My dream of becoming a teacher started at an early age! I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Grand Canyon University in 2000. I then went on to earn my Master's Degree, with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction, from Northern Arizona University in 2003.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. I believe that I do whatever it takes to help my students become life-long learners!
