Welcome to sixth grade! I am excited to be your child's teacher this year, and look forward to creating lifelong memories with each and every one of you. Thank you for sharing your sixth grader with me!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with both degrees from the University of Phoenix, first with my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management, then I completed my Masters of Art in Elementary Education in 2007. I've been teaching at Haley Elementary since 2012, and I am looking forward to the upcoming school year.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe the children are our future... I believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. I will assist children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas. Teach them well and let them lead the way... Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. My role as a teacher is to give children the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. To accomplish this goal, I will teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful.
