Welcome families! It's going to be a great school year! I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and starting another spectacular year at Ryan.
My Education and Professional Background
This will be my fifth year at Ryan and my ninth year of teaching in Arizona. Although third grade is my favorite, I have also taught fifth and first grade during by teaching career. I graduated in 2007 with my B.A. in Elementary Education from Eastern Washington University, which is located near my hometown of Spokane, Washington. Last December I graduated from Arizona State University with my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Literacy Education. That same month our family grew by one with the birth of my daughter. I look forward to a great school year!
My Educational Philosophy
Teaching has always been a passion of mine because I believe that all children have the ability to succeed. I invite discussion and exploration in the classroom through the use of group work and manipulatives. When children are excited and engaged, the learning comes naturally. My role as the teacher is to show students the way and give them the tools necessary to feel successful. By teachers, parents, and the school community working together, it builds an environment where students can thrive.
