Welcome to the 4th grade. I am excited to be your child's teacher this year. I have been working in the district since 2000 and it is a great place. I am originally from Colorado and love all things that I can do outdoors. I am married and we have twins that attend school here at Ryan Elementary. As a family we love to camp, hike, and fish. I am looking forward to a great year.
My Education and Professional Background
I began working here in Chandler as a Para Professional for students with special needs in 2000. Over the next four years I worked with various ages and schools learning from all the great teachers' classrooms that I was in. I graduated from ASU in 2006 with my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education. I have taught 3rd- 5th grade and enjoy seeing the students discover new topics and cement their love of learning.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that all students are capable learners. 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. I believe children have greater respect for their teachers, their peers, and become personally invested when they feel safe and sure of what is expected of them.
