I have 4 years of experience in my own classroom, as well as my student teaching experience prior. I have confidence in teaching all core subjects, as well as the important Social Emotional learning that is necessary for our children to grow and succeed in today's world.
I received my B. A. in History with a minor in Family and Human Development and B. S. in Business Management at Arizona State University. I then earned my M. Ed. in Elementary Education as well. Throughout my postgraduate work, I had the opportunity to teach elementary and middle school students in Title I, charter, and private school settings.
My background and who I am as an individual have strongly shaped my teaching. While I have been influenced by many incredible individuals, education enabled me to become independent as a paraplegic. I would like my students to see that anything is possible with a proper education, hard work, and having someone believe in them.
