I grew up in Illinois and then moved to Arizona to attend college at Northern Arizona University. I earned my Bachelors in Elementary Education and a minor in psychology in 2002. When I am not in school, I like to spend time with my husband and three wonderful children. We also have two dogs, a bearded dragon, and a rabbit. I enjoy family trips, baking, walking, and cooking.
My Philosophy and Goals as a Teacher:
I intend to help and teach each child as an UNIQUE individual having their own rate of growth and development.
I intend to have our classroom be pleasant, positive, secure, and a safe place to learn.
My goals in teaching are to help each child be happy, make friends, have a positive self-image and experience many successes through positive interaction and seeing pride in their accomplishments.
Thank you for letting me be your partner in education. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year!
