Welcome to second grade! I am excited to be your child's teacher this year, and look forward to creating lifelong memories with each and every one of you. Thank you for sharing your second grader with me!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) and have my Master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction from ASU. Prior to coming to CUSD, I taught fourth grade in Tempe for 11 years.

My Educational Philosophy

I am a dedicated, talented, and enthusiastic teacher with 17 years of experience using formal and informal data assessment and highly-engaging lessons to see that all students are successful. My goal is to combine individual student strengths with a well-structured, cooperative-learning environment in order to foster student independence and celebrate your child's love of learning. I look forward to partnering with your family in order to provide your Auxier second grade student with the best experience possible!
