I'm extremely excited to begin my new journey in the Chandler Schools. I hope I experience the greatest learning adventures with the Andersen Astronauts.

My Education and Professional Background

My childhood dream came true when I became a teacher in 1999. After graduating from ASU in Elementary Education, I knew that I had become a lifelong learner. Always learning side by side with young children. I have my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, also from Arizona State University.

My Educational Philosophy

The responsibility of being a teacher is one that I do not take lightly. It is my job, within my heart and within my classroom, to ensure the social, emotional and academic growth of every student. I believe that one of my gifts is to be able to reach each child individually; I seek and enrich their strengths and assist them with their successes. We are part of a team…that is reinforced on a daily basis in my classroom. Equally important to me as an educator, is my communication and collaboration with my families. They are a vital piece of our team. Parents are welcomed into my classroom and often assist me with activities.
