Welcome to 6th grade! I am an Arizona native, and have 3 beautiful daughters who also attend Chandler schools. I am looking forward to working with all the students, parents and teachers here at Navarrete!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with both my Bachelor of Science, and my Master of Education from Northern Arizona University. Go Lumberjacks! I first started my teaching career 20 years ago for the Tempe Elementary School District, where I taught 3rd and 5th grades. I moved to Chandler, and taught at Shumway Elementary in 6th and 2nd grades. I then took some time off from the classroom to raise my three daughters. During that time, I did some substitute teaching for the district, as well as worked as a 911 operator and dispatcher for the Phoenix Police Department. I am excited to be back in the classroom again teaching my favorite grade level!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe every child has the right, and ability to learn. My classroom is a safe, respectful and creative place where different teaching styles are used to reach every student. I believe education is an equal partnership between the teachers, students and parents, where each has a duty and responsibility in order for that learning to take place.
