Position: 2nd Grade TOP Teacher
Hello! Welcome to second grade TOP!! I am beyond proud to be a part of this 2nd grade team at Hartford Elementary, and I am incredibly excited to be your TOP teacher. Second grade TOP will bring new learning, new challenges, new opportunities and many memories. I am eager to spend time with my new students as well as their families, and I am thrilled to be challenged and learn alongside you.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Northern Arizona University in December of 2017 with my bachelors degree in Elementary Education, and I am currently attending Grand Canyon University to obtain my masters degree. During my college career I spent time with students of all grades K-6. For the entirety of my professional career, I have worked at Hartford Elementary. I began as a site-wide substitute, then taught 2nd grade for 3 years, and am now continuing with the TOP program.
My Educational Philosophy
Getting the opportunity to work with children each day is a privilege. I believe it takes passion, hard work, and an open mind to achieve success. I will share the love I have for learning with my students through various methods of instruction, in hopes of creating an impact on my students for their future endeavors.
