My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University with a BAE in secondary education and a MAE in elementary education from the University of Phoenix. I have taught here in beautiful Arizona for 31 years. I've taught art, computer skills, media/library skills, second grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade. I've also taught night classes for our district and was a proctor for the CATS / gifted testing throughout district. Teaching third grade has been a goal of mine, as well as teaching at Tarwater.

My Educational Philosophy

My philosophy in teaching is based on the belief that every child has the right to feel safe in the school environment, receive a quality education, and to be provided with an environment that is inspiring and enriching. I believe every child is able to learn. The learning environment must include a variety of methods that incorporate various learning styles, using multiple modalities in the classroom setting. I am committed to inspire and support the learning needs of my students with the goal to bring them to their fullest potential.
