Welcome to 2nd grade! I am so excited to be your child's teacher. We are going to have a fantastic year together. When I'm not teaching, I like to take photographs and hike the beautiful local trails. I enjoy going to the movies with family and friends. I have been an educator in Chandler since 2005. I absolutely love this district and am so fortunate to be at Auxier this year with an amazing staff, student body, and supportive families. I am dedicated to your child's educational needs.
My Education and Professional Background
I have lived in the East Valley since 1987 and have attended Gilbert and Apache Junction Public Schools. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2006, Go Devils! I received my Master's Degree in 2012 from Northern Arizona University. I am a lifelong learner and am enthusiastic about learning new strategies and techniques to apply in the classroom.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe students learn by doing. I think it is extremely important to have a classroom where children feel comfortable to take risks and try new things even if they seem hard at first. I use positive reinforcement to encourage students to persevere. Creating trusting relationships with students is a priority. Thank you for sharing the partnership in learning and growing this year!
