Welcome to 6th grade! I am so excited to be joining the Independence Hawks team this year! I am looking forward to a great school year – together we will work hard, learn a lot … and have some fun along the way!

My Education and Professional Background

I earned my Bachelors degree in elementary education from Southern Nazarene University and my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Grand Canyon University. The 2018-2019 school year will be my 11th year teaching. I spent the first 7 years of my career teaching 6th grade in the Gilbert School District. For the past 3 years, I have been teaching 2nd grade in the virtual world. I am so excited to be back in 6th grade!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe the role of an educator extends beyond teaching math facts and grammatical structures. It is my goal to provide students with opportunities to grow socially and emotionally, in addition to the academic growth they will make throughout the year. I firmly believe that students CAN and WILL “rise to the occasion”. I strive each year to set the bar high for students and then create an atmosphere in which we work together to see everyone achieve success.
