Welcome to the Early Childhood Education program at Hamilton High School. We offer classes and intern experiences for students who are interested in careers with children from birth-3rd grade. Our wonderful program works in conjunction with our campus Lil' Express Childcare Center for children 0-5 years old as well as the CUSD elementary schools in our area.
My Education and Professional Background
I have a BFA from the University of Arizona, a Post-Baccalaureate from the University of Phoenix, and a Masters Degree in Education from Arizona State University. I also have earned National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe every child can learn and be successful. In order to build a positive and respected learning environment, there first needs to be a relationship built on trust. This trust needs to start with me and then felt by my students. I will strive to build a rapport and understand each of my individual student's needs and learning styles. Relationship is the key to building a positive, safe and respected learning environment where all students can learn and be successful.
