Welcome to Chandler Online Academy

Educational Background:

I have a BS in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education M. Ed Secondary Education, History Emphasis, National Board Certified Teacher, Social Studies/History2014 Arizona Teacher of the Year Semi-Finalist. The 18-19 school year will be my 1st year with Chandler Online Academy.

Educational Philosophy:

There is something for everyone. This philosophy of teaching hits every learner. Not everyone learns the same or is interested in the same thing. It is important for our learners to think like historians, not like Jeopardy contestants. In treating our classroom like a lab for historians, our students can find something that they are interested in. Allowing student choice is a huge portion of my educational philosophy. Giving students choice allows them to explore what they have interest in, thus History is so rich that it allows students to go off into their own part of it, what they are engaged in. When we look at the continuance of our democracy, we look at the citizen’s ability to effectively participate in that process. Knowing your stance, having the ability to look at the opposition, and defend your opinion with evidence that is valid is the cornerstone of democracy.
