Welcome to all of the Patterson PRIDE! The opportunity to work with Patterson's amazing staff, students, and parents is truly an honor. I am confident this will be a successful year in working together to build lasting memories for our students and PRIDE community. Please feel free to stop by the office, find me on campus, or send a letter through our Patterson Postal Service so I can learn about your family. Have a 'PAWS'itively great year!
My Education and Professional Background
My commitment to education has allowed me to work in a variety of school environments. After earning a degree in Child and Adolescent Development I had eight years of rewarding experiences teaching fourth, fifth and sixth grade in Los Angeles, and then in the Chandler district at CTA Freedom. I earned my Master degree at NAU in Educational Leadership which led me to the role of Dean of Students at Riggs and Basha Elementary schools. I truly believe that the Patterson community is Arizona's finest.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that all students are capable of success and achieving high standards when provided with quality instruction that is based upon their individual needs. It is my goal that our students and families feel part of a school environment that supports academic, social and behavioral growth.
