Welcome!

Hello! I feel so honored to be part of the team that continues to make Casteel the amazing school it has quickly become! I have a deep passion for language arts & can’t wait to share that love with my students. I live in Gilbert with my husband Joe & two of our three children, Nicholas & Braedon. Our adult daughter, Allison, is a Special Education here at Casteel. My husband & I are originally from the suburbs of Chicago & continue to be HUGE Chicago sports fans!!! Go Cubs Go!

My Education and Professional Background

I earned my Bachelors of Science in Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education from Illinois State University in 1998. I earned my Educational Leadership master's degree from NAU, while my Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis master's degree is from ASU. I guess you could call me a Lifelong Learner dedicated to education! I have been teaching in Chandler since 2005.

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.
