Welcome to sixth grade! I am an Arizona native and grew up attending Chandler schools, including Navarrete, Payne and Perry. I had such a wonderful educational experience, and it is my hope that your child does too. I look forward to the new school year!
My Education and Professional Background
I attended both Arizona State University and University of South Carolina. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. I completed my student teaching in Tempe, Arizona, but interned at various elementary schools throughout the valley.
My Educational Philosophy
In order for children to be successful in school, it is important to create and maintain a strong classroom community. I believe that the classroom should be a safe zone where children feel comfortable enough to express their different viewpoints and speak their minds freely. I will use a lot of different grouping strategies so students get the chance to hear the thought processes of their classmates and put their ideas together. I will teach students how to become problem-solvers and give them the tools to accomplish many goals throughout the year.
