Welcome!

Welcome to third grade at Weinberg Gifted Academy! Are you as excited as me for what’s to come? I’m not sure! But, I hope so! I am delighted to be here, working towards better tomorrow’s alongside our students. I look forward to all of the experiences we are about to have, all of the exploration that is about to occur, and all of the moments we are all about to share.

My Education and Professional Background

As a high schooler in New York, I loved my English teacher. She was eclectic and inspirational and I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up the minute I met her. After high school, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Arizona State University. The ever-present urge to continue my learning, led me to earn a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix. I am currently working on realizing my dream of being endorsed for Gifted Education.

My Educational Philosophy

My philosophy of education stems from exploration. Where and when are we most willing to explore? In a supportive environment where mistakes are okay, questions are welcome, it’s okay to take risks, and working with others is an asset. As the mom of gifted children, and a former gifted child myself, I understand the trials and tribulations gifted learners go through. I am here to facilitate their learning and to be the someone our kids can lean on for support and encouragement. They are going to fail at things, but from that failure, will blossom the ability to overcome and succeed in their endeavors. I can’t wait to see where this year will take us all!
