Welcome to 5th grade! I am honored to be your child's teacher this year. I have been a part of the Tarwater family since 2004 and all four of my children have been Toros. I am married and my oldest son is in college and the other three are here at Tarwater. We are going to have an amazing year full of fun and learning!
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 2001. I taught third and second grade in Missouri before moving to AZ in 2004 where I taught first grade here at Tarwater. After having our second son I took time off to be a mom but remained a part of the Tarwater community as a parent, PTO member and substitute teacher. I also taught preschool during this time and was the Tarwater Media Assistant last year. I am so excited to be back in the classroom this year and I am looking forward to sharing this year with your child.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe in giving each child that enters my classroom the tools they need to be confident and comfortable learning in a safe and enriching environment. I teach each child as if they were my own and hope to foster a love for learning that will last a lifetime. I will create meaningful leaning experiences that are challenging yet fun and help students reach their full potential not only academically but socially.
