|"Now, as a nation, we don't promise equal outcomes, but we were founded on the idea everybody should have an equal opportunity to succeed. No matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, you can make it. That's an essential promise of America. Where you start should not determine where you end up."|

My Education and Professional Background
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Special Education from Northern Arizona University in December 2013. Shortly after I began my first teaching job, teaching 5th grade, in January 2014. Upon finishing up that school year, I moved to Cottonwood, AZ for a year and taught 6th Gr. Language Arts and Social Studies at Cottonwood Middle School. This was an exciting adventure, but after a year I decided to come back home to the East Valley. I am excited to now be teaching at Andersen Elem.
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 an 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.
