B.Ed in Elementary Education Studying toward Master's degree in Educational Technology
This is my fourth year teaching in the Deer Valley district. I taught one year at Paseo Hills Elementary before coming to Copper Creek, where I attended school as an elementary student. I am very excited to have been able to come back as a teacher and be part of such an amazing school community. After three years as a fifth grade teacher, I am looking forward to experiencing the world of 6th grade! I received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University and I am an Arizona native. Currently, I am working on my master's degree in Educational Technology from ASU. I love teaching and motivating my students to become lifelong learners and problem solvers. I am always seeking innovative ways to implement technology into my classroom to engage my students and help them build skills they will need for our ever-evolving technological world.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy heading outdoors with my friends and family - hiking, swimming, days at the lake, or even traveling to the beach. I am also an avid reader, and I hope to instill this love for reading in my students. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
