My Education and Professional Background
In 2004, I earned my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from the GREATEST college ~ Arizona State ~ GO DEVILS! In 2010, I received my Masters from Northern Arizona University in Curriculum and Instruction. I love learning and I hope that my passion for teaching will help motivate my students to be lifelong learners.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe in creating a positive learning environment where students are willing to take chances, feel loved, valued and confident in their abilities. I strive to create a positive and strong relationship with each of my students and their families as we work together and become a team to ensure success for every child. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and their families.
