I guess you could call me a Lifelong Learner dedicated to education! I taught Early Childhood Special Education my first year out of college. Since then I've been teaching 6th grade.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people.

My Educational Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is that I believe every child can be successful. School can be challenging for some students but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be successful in some way. My passion is to teach kids not only academics but also to be leaders of this world. Every child deserves an education and to have a teacher that will push them to their very best. It’s my job to be their leader and role model before they are able to do it themselves. I love my job and I can’t imagine being anywhere else.

Welcome!

My name is Christie DeCarlo-Merone. My husband and I relocated from NY in 2003 to start our family. We are blessed with a son and a daughter who bring us such joy. I am looking forward to teaching students how to be leaders, problem solvers, and critical thinkers, as well as, arming them with the knowledge they need to be successful learners. I uphold high expectations for students, and I know together we can meet them.

My Education and Professional Background

I completed my honors program and received my Masters degree in Special and Elementary Education from Manhattanville College in NY. I also majored in history and have a minor in art. I have taught every grade level focusing on students with disabilities for the past twelve years for Gilbert Public Schools. I have grown so much professionally over these years. I am passionate about continuing to participate in professional development, so I can share new ideas with parents, students and colleagues. I am particularly interested in the exploration of differentiated instruction in an effort to meet the needs of diverse learning styles.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that all students can learn and it’s my job as an educator to help cultivate their strengths and provide opportunities for growth in areas of weakness. I believe students need feedback to grow, as a result it is essential to communicate with both students and parents. It is also equally important, to build a supportive classroom community, so students feel comfortable to take risks and where mistakes are viewed as opportunities to learn and grow. I think high expectations and standards should be set for students, but that I need to use a variety of instructional techniques for students to achieve their personal goals. I feel strongly that there should not be a cookie cutter classroom or one size fits all class, because students learn differently and have different interests. At the end of the day it is my goal to have students enjoy learning.

I graduated from Mary Lou Fulton at Arizona State University. Go Sun Devils! I have taught fifth grade and fourth grade! I have worked with both the Spalding and Saxon Math programs since the start. I believe that both programs provide students with the scaffolding repetition and application that leads them to mastery. I have been involved in a number of extra curricular committees and teams such as: Student Council, Leadership Team, Water/Field Day, and Science Fair.

My Educational Philosophy

Welcome!

My name is Barbara Dethlefsen and I am thrilled to be the music teacher at Auxier Elementary School!! I have been teaching music in Chandler since 2008. I have taught music in Michigan as well and have been teaching for over 20 years. I have five children and three grandchildren. I am a Michigan State University graduate (Go Spartans!). In my spare time I love to walk, read, play piano, play with my grandchildren and go to music events. I am looking forward to a great year!

My Education and Professional Background

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education and Music Therapy from Michigan State University. I have been a professional keyboardist and accompanist,and private piano teacher. I have also taught band and orchestra. I taken many post graduate classes and attend several music workshops during the year through the Arizona Orff Association.

My Educational Philosophy

An appreciation for music develops beautiful human beings. I believe that all children should have music experiences as young as possible. All can become musically literate as they are language literate. Through various experiences in music; singing, movement, listening and instrument experimentation children will internalize musicianship skills. They will learn about rhythm, melody, harmony, style, dynamics and form. Inner hearing should precede playing music. Children can experience joy and learn cooperation through ensemble playing and singing of music from many genres and cultures. Since music making is a gift of lifetime enjoyment it should be a very important and integral part of a child’s education. As your child’s music teacher, I will strive to provide them with the best possible music experiences to help them enjoy music throughout their life and to hopefully create a more beautiful world in the process.
