Welcome to COA 4th Grade! I believe in fostering a learning environment that encourages growth while celebrating success and failure. While teaching is one of my true passions, I also enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and cooking.

My Education and Professional Background

I grew up in the Midwest and moved to Arizona to attend ASU. I received my bachelor's degree from Arizona State University and my master's degree from Northern Arizona University. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher. I am endorsed in Gifted, Early Childhood, and Structured English Immersion. In 2018, I earned my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Innovation through Arizona State University.

My Educational Philosophy

My goals are to help students by establishing efficient working habits, strong reading skills, developing positive attitudes, and accepting responsibilities for all they do. I am really looking forward to watching your child grow and experience new things this year.
