Welcome to Shumway! I am proud to be part of the Shumway family of Shining Stars and to spend my day with our astounding students! This year, I am honored to be teaching English and to watch our children grow and develop into amazing Leaders!
My Education and Professional Background
As an NAU Lumberjack, I graduated with my BA in Elementary Education with an Emphasis in ESL. I continued on at NAU to complete my Masters Degree in Bilingual/Multicultural Education. My first teaching position in 1994, was here in Chandler at Humphrey Elementary School in Second and Third Grades. After many years of teaching English and Reading in our community colleges and ASU, I returned home to CUSD as the Title I Coordinator and now the ELD/ILLP Teacher at Shumway Leadership Academy.
My Educational Philosophy
It is my personal belief that all of us have unique gifts, talents, and purpose. As an educator, I strive to help my students find their strengths and success in a safe and welcoming environment. I believe education should be cooperative, fun, and the basis of creating life long learners! Here at Shumway, this passion for growing up Leaders in our world, and finding the greatness in all of us, is guiding our classroom communities. I hope to cultivate a spirit of pride, honor, leadership, kindness, and knowledge as we celebrate the successes of our individual learners and community!
