I have been teaching Kinder for 6 years and have also been a reading interventionist for 1st - 3rd grade.
I am a laid back teacher and I love when children discover and learn on their own! I am more of a constructivist and you will find my students playing learning games or working with partners most of the day. I rarely stand up and lecture, and if I do, I balance out my teacher talk and student talk. I strive for 100% engagement 100% of the time!
I have been awarded the Arizona Cardinals MVP in the classroom award. I have been awarded several school awards. I served on my district's math leadership committee and am in the process of rewriting the district math assessment for kindergarten.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Teaching and Leadership and my Master's Degree in Elementary Reading. I hold an SEI and Reading endorsement.
I love it here in AZ! When I'm not working on school projects and committees, I'm spending time with my husband and our beautiful daughter.
