My Education and Professional Background
I began working in the Chandler District as a kindergarten aide at Humphrey Elementary. I was with kindergarten for 3 years before I began working toward my degree in teaching. In the fall of 2005, I did my student teaching (4th grade) at Humphrey Elementary and graduated with my degree from Ottawa University. Following that, I was then hired at Sanborn in December for a position in resource, working with 5th and 6th graders. At the end of that school year, I was hired back at Sanborn to teach 3rd grade. I'm now in 4th grade and I love it!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe in students believing in themselves. There is no stronger power than that to help them on their paths to their own successes. I want to provide opportunities for my students to share their thoughts and ideas in a safe, learning environment. When alternate ideas and thought processes are shared, it not only builds stronger connections to one another, but also gives my students several strategies to help them operate in the world around us. I believe in the power of shared learning and working as a team, as well as the power of each individual student. I enjoy seeing things through the eyes of my students and spending time with each one to understand how they think and reflect on their learning. I work hard to help struggling students master concepts and challenge those who are ready for it. In my mind, one of the best feeling s in the world is to see the look of success and inspiration on my students’ faces.
