My Education and Professional Background
After receiving my teaching certificate from ASU, I began teaching Spanish in the Kyrene School District, later trading languages and teaching adult English Language Learners, and then returning to teach Spanish part-time here at Casteel. When the opportunity came to teach LCC and return to my passion for college and career exploration, I jumped at the chance to use my background in counseling. I feel fortunate to be in the CTE Department and look forward to helping students understand their potential and help them realize their goals.
My Educational Philosophy
As a teacher, I understand that all students learn in different ways and have different strengths. I hope that my students know that they are valued and that their input is worthwhile. I expect my students to work hard and at the same time, enjoy the process of self-exploration. My hope is that they become life-long learners in the pursuit of their goals and dreams.
