|Position:||Dean of Students|
I have been a teacher since 1998 and part of the Chandler Unified School District family since 2007. As a parent and a professional educator, I feel truly fortunate to be a part of such an innovative, supportive and inclusive district that provides unmatched opportunities for the academic needs of all learners and their families. When not teaching I can be found reading, writing, learning, and exploring life's wonders with my husband and four boys, all of whom have flourished in CUSD schools.
My Education and Professional Background
A proud product of Arizona public schools, I hold a B.A. in Education with a minor in music from the UArizona, M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction and M.A. in Educational Leadership from NAU, and PhD coursework in Language, Reading & Culture through UArizona. A firm believer in lifelong learning, I constantly seek ways to grow and connect professionally, intellectually, and personally.
My Educational Philosophy
I appreciate the intensity of my chosen career path and never dread a Monday. I am a professional educator by choice and with purpose. I believe children come to us energetic, expressive, curious, concerned, creative, intense, and inspiring. I strive to honor students' diverse ways of knowing and aim to provide opportunities for them to love learning and develop a sense of educational purpose.
