Welcome to 5th grade! I am so happy to be teaching your children this year! I look forward to an amazing year of growth as well as creating a supportive community within our classroom. It is going to be a FANTASTIC year!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University in 2005 with a degree in business and mass communications. I immediately returned to school to pursue my dream of teaching and have loved being a 5th grade teacher ever since!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that learning is lifelong and includes much more than academics. I want each child in my classroom to be a person of character, internalizing and demonstrating the traits of integrity, courage, compassion, respect, responsibility, fairness, and citizenship. My hope is that my love for teaching will create a passion for learning within my students. I strongly believe that a strong partnership between home and school will produce the most successful impact on our learners. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and their families this year!
