I am a dual certified teacher with experience in both the general and special education classrooms and am National Board Certified in Exceptional needs. I am so excited to begin a new chapter as the 5th grade Language Arts and Science teacher. Reading and writing are very strong passions of mine. In my spare time, I enjoy writing poetry and reading classic literature. I also love science! Fun fact: When I was in middle school, I made it to the state science fair, twice.
I have worked with students from K-8th grade in a variety of places including Sedona and Minnesota and now here in Anthem. I am fortunate to have two children of my own. I have a 9-year-old daughter who will be attending 4th grade and a son who is in 8th grade at Diamond Canyon. I strongly believe that every child has great potential to learn and that it is my job to help find the motivation to help him/her be successful.
Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire. ~Arnold H. Glasow
