Welcome to 1st Grade! I am very excited to be here at Patterson and I look forward to a wonderful year filled with many unique learning experiences. I am an Arizona native and grew up in Glendale. A few years ago I met my amazing husband and moved to Ahwatukee with him. I enjoy spending quality time with my loved ones and friends. I also love traveling, hiking, camping, reading, watching movies, and much more!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education along with my endorsement in PreK-12 Structured English Immersion. I started teaching in 2009. I am so happy to be teaching 1st grade again and am grateful to be a part of the Chandler Unified School District! Besides teaching, I have also had over 10 years experience working with children of all ages in gymnastics and dance, and coaching high school cheer. I was a competitive gymnast for many years and understand what it is to be a team player, be motivated, and work hard to achieve goals. These are qualities I plan to instill into all of my 1st grade students!
My Educational Philosophy
My passion has always been working with and making a difference in the lives children, which is why I became a teacher! I believe in creating a positive classroom environment where all of my students enjoy coming to everyday and one where they feel valued, understood, and cared for. I believe that we are all lifelong learners and my goal is to instill a love of learning into each and every one of my students. I look forward to celebrating the growth and successes of all of my students throughout the school year!
