Welcome to 6th grade! I am excited to embark on a new educational journey this school year, and I am confident it will be the best year ever!

My Education and Professional Background

I began my educational journey as an inspiring writer, which led me to pursue a career as a Journalist. I attended ASU, and graduated with my BA in Journalism, with an emphasis in Public Relations. After completing my family, I realized I wanted to become a teacher. I completed my Master's in Education at University of Phoenix in 2007. I taught 3rd grade for 3 years, and 4 years as a 2nd grade teacher in Gilbert. I am excited to share my love of learning, and impart my passion for teaching as a 6th grade teacher at Shumway Leadership Academy.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that each child is a unique individual, who deserves a safe, caring, and stimulating environment, in order to maximize their social, intellectual, and physical capabilities. It is my desire as their teacher, to help them reach their fullest potential by ensuring that they are in a secure environment, support risk-taking, and encourage their shared ideas. To ensure this, I will act as their guide, develop their own natural curiosity to direct their learning , and promote mutual respect, in and out of the classroom.
