Hello and welcome to 5th grade! I am originally from the tiny Pacific island of Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands. I moved to Arizona in 2012 with my husband, Cole, and our dog, Bella. I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year. We will have a lot of fun learning and growing together. I am honored to have the opportunity to be a partner in your child's education.
My Education and Professional Background
I was a 2nd grade teacher for three and a half years and an elementary school counselor for two and a half years. I taught 4th grade for 2 years in the Higley Unified School District. I have been working at Conley since 2015. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Psychology from the University of Idaho and a Master's degree in International Education from Framingham State University. I love teaching and learning and plan to continue in this field for many years.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy begins with encouraging the power and extent of learning for each of my students. I believe that I have a fundamental responsibility to each of my students to teach them the importance of respect and values. I also believe that I have a duty to help my students understand and value the significance of diversity.
