Degrees and Certifications:
Hi 2nd Graders,
It is my sixth year here at Copper Creek. I love teaching here and being apart of this close knit community.
I received a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from NAU, and currently working toward the completion of my reading endorsement.
My personal goal for my future classroom is to challenge students and watch them grow to their full potential. I want to take students at different levels and see them develop together for the advancement of each individual. Therefore, group work is the key to having a successful class and is something I value. The impact of group work, when students help fellow students, changes each person and transforms the atmosphere of the class as a whole. In my classroom, I want students to have freedom that allows for expression and creativity. Students should be able to experiment with likes and dislikes and to realize their strengths and weaknesses. After this base is developed, the curriculum can be molded to tie in each student’s learning style.
I am married and I have two boys. In my free time I love spending time with family and friends, reading, hiking, and traveling.
Again, I am looking forward to helping your child grow acedemically and socially.
