"I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit."
-- John Steinbeck

Welcome! I am excited to be a part of Sanborn Elementary as your child's fifth grade teacher. I am looking forward to a wonderful year and to help create a community of lifelong learners!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University in May of 2013. I began teaching 5th grade in July of 2013 at Sanborn Elementary in Chandler Unified School District.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that 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. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.
