    Thank you for visiting! I am excited for another great year here at Navarrete. To share a little about myself: I am originally from Michigan, but Arizona has been home since 1998. I live in Chandler with my husband and our two daughters, Ava and Brooklyn. We are going to have a fun and exciting year learning and exploring new things together.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Education from the University of Phoenix. I have endorsements in Early Childhood Education and Structured English Immersion.  After leaving the corporate world in sales and management,  I have found my passion in teaching. I have been teaching since 2005 in first, second, third, and currently fourth grade.

    My Educational Philosophy

    I believe every child is unique, and capable of success. My goal is to inspire a life-long love of learning in each child in my classroom and to provide an environment that supports risk-taking, helps each student reach their fullest potential and promotes respect and kindness towards others.
