Welcome first grade! I am very excited to be here this year and I am looking forward to working together to make this a great academic year.
My Education and Professional Background
I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Education from the University of Phoenix. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education K-8 with an emphasis in Science from Grand Canyon University. I have been teaching in the Chandler school district since 2016 and am very happy to be a part of the Galveston School community.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people.
