Hello! I am SO glad you are here. I am also excited to be your student's 2nd grade teacher! It is my goal to help them grow, come out of their shells, and learn new things. This will be my 1st year teaching for DVUSD. I am new resident here in Arizona, coming from the state of Minnesota. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and am working towards my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction.
In one of my favorite TED Talks, Rita Peirson states “every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” To your student, I want to be that champion. It is my goal to provide a classroom that is a safe place for all who enter, allowing them to achieve their goals, make new cinnections, and fully be themselves.
I'm looking forward to this school year and being a champion for your student. Your student can do anything they put their mind to.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions or concerns.
