This is my 8th year teaching Kindergarten and I am looking forward to many more!
I set very high expectation for all of my students; they are capable of so much! I am firm with my students but we also like to have A LOT fun. I love to incorporate music and body movement into my teaching whenever possible because it really helps my students to enjoy and retain new information!
I have not received any formal awards but I have the respect of my peers and administrators and that is enough for me! :)
I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and I have a teaching certificate in both Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I also have a Master's degree in Reading Curriculum and Instruction.
I have lived in sunny Arizona my whole life. I enjoy exercising, spending time with friends and family, playing with my sweet dog, and watching my Cubbies!
