Welcome to my 1st grade class! I am thrilled to begin my second year with the CTA Independence family! Let's get ready for an amazing 2019-2020 school year!

My Education and Professional Background

I have been teaching for seven years. I taught Pre-Kindergarten for one year, kindergarten for three years, and have taught first grade for two years! I am an ASU alum ( GO DEVILS!) and also have my Masters in Early Childhood Education. I have worked with children for over eight years and love working in early childhood education!

My Educational Philosophy

I am a firm believer in creating a partnership between the parents and the teacher. Parent involvement in a child’s education is very important to me and something I believe the child truly benefits from. I also believe in setting high expectations both academically and emotionally for all children. They are amazing, young individuals capable of being great examples for others!
