My Education and Professional Background

I began teaching in 1996 after earning a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education From Prescott College. I have taught in K and 1st grade all the while. In 2011, I earned a Master’s in Education Administration from Ft. Hays State University.

My Educational Philosophy

My philosophy as an educator places great value on helping students grow to be confident, understanding, and able. I believe that students that are confident in themselves and their strengths, whatever they may be, are better prepared to pursue their own unique interests. Understanding how the world around them works as well as the people around them helps students to be able to navigate their lives in a more enlightened manner. By helping students to realize how able they actually are, we allow them to become contributors to the betterment of all reaches of our society.
