    Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts! I cannot wait to meet each and every one of you, teach you the exciting curriculum we have and prepare you for the next step; high school!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I graduated from Arizona State University with my Bachelors in Secondary Education- English. I am so excited to work with such fabulous staff and students at Payne in the state's best school district!

    My Educational Philosophy

    I believe all students have the right to an equal education that pushes them with a challenging curriculum but rewards them with the knowledge that they can do anything they set their mind to. I stand strong in my belief that all students have unique learning styles and do my absolute best to make sure I support each student's creative learning styles and practices. My door is always open and if I can't be reached in class or on my phone, I'm always checking emails!
