Welcome to the 5th grade! This year you will be scientists, you will be explorers, you will be important, you will be loved, you will be respected, you will be a friend, you will be a teammate. I look forward to working with each and every one of you.

My Education and Professional Background

I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl. Growing up and attending Chandler Schools (Santan and Basha) made me eager to provide students with the same wonderful opportunities and experiences I had in Chandler Schools. I graduated from Mary Lou Fulton at Arizona State University. Go Sun Devils! I have spent most of time in fourth grade and decided I was ready for a new challenge. Fifth grade here I come! I have worked with both the Spalding and Saxon Math programs. 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

Why I Teach: Teaching is an opportunity to create lifelong learners and problem solvers. I want my students to have a safe and fun learning environment to look forward to every day. I want to teach my students to have grit and never give up. I teach to reflect and learn. What I Teach: I teach passion, collaboration, humility, and kindheartedness. I teach students to take responsibility for their actions. Students learn how to have an active role as part of a team. I teach students to believe and achieve more than they ever thought possible. I teach higher level thinking, the importance in questioning, and communication. How do I Teach: I teach with specifically set high expectations and goals. I teach with a variety of instructional strategies and techniques. I use a variety of methods to deliver content. I consider and use each student’s strengths. I use tools and connections to the real world so that delivered content matters.
