Welcome to 3rd grade!
My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively and promoting self-esteem. Working together, we can assure that your child feels loved, welcomed, and succeeds at school. I feel that communication between parents and teachers is vital so please feel to contact me at anytime. I look forward to working with you this year!
A little bit about myself...
I was born and spent most of my early childhood on a dairy farm in upstate New York. The latter part of my childhood was spent in North Phoenix where I attended high school before attending Arizona State University, receiving my degree in Early Childhood Education. I am currently working towards a master degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This will be my 7th year teaching with Gilbert Public School. Prior to joining GPS, I taught at a private school in Chandler.
I am not only a teacher; I am also a mother of two daughters, ages 14 and 11. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 15 years and we live in Gilbert. When I am not teaching, I enjoy crafting, reading, traveling, and I am a HUGE college football fan! GO DEVILS!
