Hello Ryan Families! I am really excited to begin another year at Ryan with you! I am looking forward to a year of fun-filled learning adventures. I really enjoy teaching students and getting to know them. I live with my husband, 2 daughters, a gigantic dog, and an aloof cat. My daughters attend Perry and Santan Jr. High. I enjoy reading, baking, working out, and most of all football. I am a HUGE Cardinals fan!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from University of Delaware with a BA in Educational Studies, then attended Centenary College in New Jersey to earn my Elementary Education Degree. I also earned a Master's Degree in Educational Counseling from Ottawa University. I'm a New Jersey native who relocated to California to pursue teaching. I taught third grade and then second grade from 1997-2005. After that, I moved to Arizona and began teaching at Ryan when we opened in 2006. I am an original Ryan Royal!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe students learn best when they are engaged, challenged, supported and having fun! In addition, I think children need to be nurtured and appreciated for the people they are and taught in a way that meets their educational needs. I have high expectations for students both academically and socially and expect them to put in their best effort. My goal is for each child to be as successful as possible.
