Hello and welcome to Kindergarten at CTA Freedom! I am absolutely honored to be your precious child's teacher this year and look forward to a year filled with learning, laughing, and growing together!

My Education and Professional Background

I recently relocated from California, where I taught for 12 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Leadership from Chapman University, am Spalding trained, and have an Early Childhood Education Endorsement from the state of Arizona.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that our charge as educators is to develop the whole child. Our children deserve our focused attention as we actively engage to help them grow academically, emotionally, and socially. We must intentionally model and teach citizenship, respect, responsibility, and lifelong learning to children, while continuously extending grace and patience. Children should always know that they are treasured, and should be given a welcoming environment where they feel safe to try new things and are encouraged to grow in new areas. It is my absolute pleasure to work with your children!
