Greetings, HHS students and families! Thank you for taking the time to visit my page! I am ecstatic for this school year to unfold, and eager to provide supportive instruction and strategies to ensure each student's continued growth and success. Please take notice of the link “Email the Teacher” at the bottom of this page, and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with a Masters in Special Education and Elementary Education (dual certification program) from Arizona State University in 2016 (Go Devils!). Prior to attending Graduate school, I spent three years as a Head Start Pre-K teacher and another 2 years as an ABA therapist and instructional assistant. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Maine with a Bachelors degree in Developmental Psychology, as well as minors in English and Sociology. I also wrote sports columns and did sports photography for the campus newspaper.
My Educational Philosophy
I share in the belief that all students can achieve academic success through sustained focus and effort. I will especially challenge students to develop their critical-thinking skills, problem-solving approaches, self-advocacy abilities, and short-term/long-term goals. Each student should have equal opportunities to showcase what they know, what they are learning and what they would like to learn. In doing so, students will be able to make strong connections and continually develop an in-depth understanding of different ideas, concepts and information. There will be a heavy emphasis on connecting learning to students' prior knowledge, cultural background and life experiences.
