    Welcome to 2nd Grade DLI! I am looking forward to learning, growing and building a wonderful community with my students and their families.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I earned my Bachelors and Masters degree from Arizona State University (GO DEVILS!) I hold Endorsements in Early Childhood Education and Structured English Immersion. I have been teaching full time since 2007 and have been in the Chandler Unified School District all of my teaching years. I am also a proud graduate of the Chandler Unified School District. Through the years of teaching, I have taught Preschool, Kindergarten (Gen Ed. and DLI) and now 2nd Grade.

    My Educational Philosophy

    My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and take risks.

    Every classroom has its own unique community; my role as the teacher will be to assist each child in developing their own potential and learning styles. I will present a curriculum that will incorporate each different learning style, as well as make the content relevant to the students' lives. I will incorporate hands-on learning, cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that engage and activate students learning.
