Welcome to 6th Grade! Students will be experiencing reading genres of all types, hands-on projects, and in depth writing assignments. Sixth grade is a special time because it is a bridge between elementary and middle school. Students will be guided both academically and socially and encouraged throughout the year to become more independent.

My Education and Professional Background

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and a Masters of Arts in Teaching from National Louis in Wheaton, IL. I have a broad teaching background which began in Chicago and continued in Arizona. I have specific training in Spalding, Fundations, Orton Gillingham, and Teaching Reading Effectively. I feel passionate about teaching, especially at the 6th grade level.

My Educational Philosophy

In partnership with my students and their parents, I want to help create a classroom where students become lifelong learners. My goal is for students to be engaged and enjoy learning. All students learn in unique ways and I hope to address their learning styles effectively.
