Welcome to Sanborn Elementary! I am new to CUSD and am excited to be teaching in the K-1 Special program.

My Education and Professional Background

I am originally from Carmel, New York and moved to Arizona in July of 2016. I received a Bachelor’s degree in education from SUNY Oswego. I finished my Master’s degree in Special Education through the University of Albany. The majority of my experience has been specializing in working with students on the autism spectrum. This is my 3rd year teaching in special programs.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe mindset plays a large role in our learning experience. Setting the classroom up through the lens of a growth mindset and positive reinforcement can empower students to give their best efforts. My goal is to create a community where students feel respected by peers and staff, are engaged in learning and bridge to independence.
