|"'It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.... if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."|
|-- Theodore Roosevelt|

My Education and Professional Background
I obtained my BA in Spanish from Hiram College, Ohio. I taught ESL in Kazakhstan and in South Korea for 5 years. I received my Master of Arts degree in Secondary Education from the University of Arizona. I've been a teacher in the Chandler Unified School District since 2013.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe every student deserves access to meaningful and personalized learning opportunities. As an educator, I strive to facilitate meaningful and cooperative interactions between students. It is my priority to provide every student with a safe and stimulating environment that promotes the sharing of ideas. I will support each student as they progress in their oral and written communication. My goal is not only to improve my students' academic performance, but also to build their character. Learning language skills as well as cultural competence leads to building self-confidence, encouraging self-reflection and the desire to challenge oneself further. I wish to instill in my students a patience to understand others and a willingness to open their minds.
