Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am so excited to be at Hancock Elementary! We are going to have a great school year. You will be amazed to see the growth of your child in kindergarten. It’s why I love this age so much! They are sponges and they soak up everything!!!

My Education and Professional Background

This will be my 13th year teaching and my fourth year back in Chandler. I taught kindergarten for 3 years in Kyrene then I was at Bologna Elementary in Chandler for the past 3 years and am now excited to be joining the Hancock family! Prior to that, I taught special education. I am originally from Iowa and graduated in 2004 from Iowa State University with my Bachelors in Early Childhood Special Education.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe every child can learn and I feel it is my job to help them reach their full potential. Not only is it my job to teach the basics, but I also feel strongly about teaching life lessons like being responsible, being kind and respectful, working together, and being leaders. These are vital pieces in a child growing up and learning to be a successful adult.
