I believe in focusing on the positive and showing mutual respect in the classroom. Relationships are everything! We focus on building a family- like community where all students feel safe to learn and make mistakes. I have a passion for addressing the diverse needs of students, reducing barriers to academic success, and building self-confidence in learners.

Teaching literacy is my favorite. I am a lover of all things primary, floral, and rainbow. I also love dogs, Target, tacos, and the outdoors!
