Welcome! I am originally from Canby, Oregon, but have lived in Arizona for about 20 years now! I have a 5 year old son who will be starting kindergarten this year! In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, paddle boarding and reading. I look forward to working with you to make your child's school year a rich and rewarding experience. Together we can cooperate to help support your child through a very important year. Please call or send me a note if you have any questions or concerns.
My Education and Professional Background
I received my degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education from Eastern Oregon University. This is my 18th year teaching in a public school. Before teaching in public schools I taught Kindergarten in a private school in Oregon for 3 years. During the 2004/05 school year I was the K-1 reading teacher here at Bologna, and the year before that I taught First Grade in Tucson. This is my 17th year teaching at Bologna. In addition to teaching here at Bologna, I also work for the City of Chandler in the Therapeutics Division. During the school year I help coach run club for the Chandler Special Olympics. I also help with other activities and events throughout the year.
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 an 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.
