Welcome!

On this webpage you will find information about classroom activities, homework assignments, and important due dates that come up during the course of the year. If you ever have any questions, contact me anytime!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education - English emphasis. I went on to earn my Masters of Education in Educational Leadership, then obtained my reading endorsement as well. My career began in the Kyrene District where I taught 7th Grade Language Arts for 9 years. I took a break after that for two years to stay home with my children. Upon returning to the classroom I accepted another position in Kyrene teaching 6th Grade Reading Intervention. After two years of that I went on to teach 8th Grade Language Arts, which is where I remained for the last five years. I now find myself fortunate enough to be a teacher here in Chandler, where my children attend, and where I am a community member as well. I am so excited about this change, and I look forward to this next opportunity to learn and grow as an educator in my 19th year of teaching.

My Educational Philosophy

I truly believe that education is the key that opens countless doors of opportunity, and that one is never done learning. I hope to instill in my students and model for them the desire to be life-long learners, helping them realize that learning goes beyond the walls of any school. I want them to know that an open mind leads to a full one.
