I understand the need for all students, regardless of age, to feel important, special, smart, capable, and accomplished. I believe all students can learn. I also believe instruction should consist of a proportionate balance of teaching freshly-gained information and learning how to apply it with a gentle, compassionate hand.
In order to create a recipe that will result in successful students, I want to carefully balance two important elements of education; continuously acquiring fresh knowledge, and enthusiastically passing it on to students while attending their individual needs.
I also believe technology should be constantly updated and taught in order to equip our students to compete with the world of learning in the 21st century.
I first received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Arizona in 2004. I then went on to receive my Master’s of Education in Adult Education and Professional Training.
I have been teaching in the classroom since 2004 in many capacities. I also have experience teaching abroad and working student students individually.
Outside of the classroom, I love to spend time with friends and family.
