I am excited and proud to be a staff member of CTA Freedom! I am responsible for overseeing the Special Education Program at our school. I have a strong commitment to children and ensuring they receive a quality and appropriate education. If there are questions about your child that I can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 1985, specializing in early childhood education. Out of college, I was hired to teach first grade in the Kyrene School District. I continued to teach and expanded my horizons by teaching fourth and fifth grades. I completed my Master's Degree in Special Education in 1988 from Northern Arizona University. I took time off from work and spent time raising our children. In 2012, I returned to teaching and began a new experience of teaching Special Education in grades K-6 in the Chandler Unified School District. The Student Services Coordinator position came open in 2015 and I was excited to take on a new challenge.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that children are precious and unique individuals who need a structured, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their potential.
