|Position:||5th Grade CTA|
Welcome to 5th Grade. I am looking forward to a great year of learning, growth, and community within our classroom. I live in Chandler with my husband and our three boys.
My Education and Professional Background
I received my undergraduate degree from Biola University and earned a Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology from NAU. I worked for several years as a Speech Pathologist and then spent several years at home with my children. After spending numerous hours volunteering at my children’s school, I decided to substitute teach. I fell in love with teaching and with each long term substitute job, I found it more difficult to let go of the group of kids I taught for several months. I ultimately decided to go back to school to pursue my teaching certificate to have a classroom of my own. I hold Arizona certificates in Elementary Education as well as a Speech Language Pathologist. I also have my Structured English Immersion endorsement and am Spalding trained.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that each child is a unique individual who is uniquely gifted and capable of success. It is my desire to help students meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that offers them a safe, secure, stimulating, and caring place to grow and learn.
