Welcome to my classroom webpage. Here you will find class information and useful resources for students to complete assignments and homework.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with Honors, Magna Cum Laude, from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Science and Content Emphasis on History. I am a certified Elementary Education teacher, and I hold a Middle School Social Studies 7-8 endorsement. I've been teaching since 1997 at both the Elementary and Junior high level with the Crane School District in Yuma, AZ and CUSD80 in Chandler, AZ. During this time I taught 4th grade, 6th grade, and Middle School Social Studies.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that all students have the potential and ability to overcome every obstacle in learning. Using cooperative learning and critical thinking in the writing and reading processes, my students will learn to form opinions based on facts and explain why and how they have arrived at their decisions. It is my hope to prepare them to be thoughtful and productive citizens who are ready for the challenges of high school, college and life.
