I have been working for a school district in Arizona since 2007. After going back to school, I finally completed my teaching certification in 2011. I have taught 2nd grade and 4th grade. I have a strong background in graphic design and editing, and I love to create things on the computer.
My focus in the classroom is on team building and cooperation with my students. I rely heavily on Kagan structures, Fred Jones, and Love and Logic every day. I believe in the philosophy that "Every student is capable of success - no matter what."
