Hello! My family and I recently moved here from Southern California. We are so happy to call the beautiful state of Arizona our new home. I am delighted to join the 5th Grade KGA team and feel privileged to be a teacher in Chandler Unified. It is inspiring to be part of a community of educators, staff members, and families who work hard every day to make sure every child is cared for and valued.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Southern California and earned a Master of Art in Teaching. While at USC, I had the honor of studying under Dr. Sandra Kaplan, an expert in differentiated curriculum and gifted education. Since graduating, I have been teaching for ten years in Los Angeles Unified School District. Most recently, I taught for four years at an accelerated visual and performing arts magnet school.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe the classroom should provide a welcoming, rigorous, and safe place for students to explore and create. The classroom is where our students and my teacher team collaborate as co-constructors of knowledge in the journey of learning. My personal vision as a teacher strongly aligns with the KGA core values: seeing the possibility, acting with empathy, and succeeding as one KGA team.
