Welcome to second grade! I am extremely excited to be in the classroom learning and growing with my students. It is going to be a great year!

My Education and Professional Background

I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Arizona State University, my Master of Education in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University, and my Master of Education in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University. I have earned my Reading Specialist, Early Childhood Education, Structured English Immersion, and Media Specialist endorsements. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy, Reading, and Language Arts. I love to learn new things! I have taught various grades in my career. I had my practicum in first grade and student taught in second grade. I taught fourth grade, kindergarten, and library. I cannot choose a favorite grade because I just love working with all kids!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe a classroom should be a warm and welcoming environment. It should be a place where students love to grow and take risks with their learning. Kids are capable of amazing things, and it is my job for my students to see that in themselves. I will also be sharing my strong passion for books and reading; my goal is to develop a lifelong love of literature and reading in my students. I want kids to be excited to curl up with a good book, and have the skills to be a strong reader.
