Welcome to sixth grade as a Goodman Gator. Sixth grade is an exciting year as students prepare themselves academically and socially for the next stop on their journey- junior high. I am happy to be a part of this.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated in 2001 from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I spent the following year substitute teaching which helped me decide what grades I wanted to teach. Then I spent three years teaching 5th grade in the Gilbert School District. With a possible family move to California, I stepped away from teaching. During this time I earned a certificate in paralegal studies. But I quickly learned my heart was still in the classroom. I taught for eight years in a small charter school in Chandler before moving to CTA Goodman.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every child is a gift. I believe that every child holds within himself or herself a great potential, but that it needs to be nourished. I believe every child can learn. I believe every child can succeed. I believe I have joined a partnership with parents to help their child reach that potential.
