|Position:||4th Grade CTA|
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I was raised in Iowa, but have lived in Arizona since 1980. I have one son, Tanner, who is a graduate of Basha High School.
My Education and Professional Background
I am a graduate of Northern Arizona University and have earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education with a Reading Endorsement.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that children are our hope for a brighter tomorrow; therefore, I must be prepared to educate students with diverse cognitive, behavioral, social, and emotional characteristics. As an educator, I assess each of these characteristics in order to effectively accommodate each student's needs and motivate them to learn. Quoting from Socrates, 'I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.'
