I am proud to return to Union Park, and to continue to be a part of our fantastic Third Grade team! It is truly a pleasure to work alongside educators and a community that are as supportive as ours.
The 2023-2024 school year will be my thirteenth year as an educator, my tenth in DVUSD. Of those thirteen years, twelve of them have been as a third grade teacher and one year was fifth grade Math. I graduated from ASU (Go Devils!) with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.
As an educator, my mission is to foster a vibrant and inclusive learning environment that empowers each student to reach their full potential. I am dedicated to nurturing a love for learning, instilling a sense of curiosity, and promoting critical thinking skills that will serve as a foundation for my students' future academic and personal growth.
I strive to create a safe and supportive classroom community where every student feels valued, respected, and celebrated for their unique strengths and perspectives. By cultivating a positive classroom culture, I aim to inspire a passion for collaboration and empathy, encouraging my students to embrace diversity and become compassionate global citizens.
Collaboration with parents, guardians, and the wider school community is of paramount importance to me. I believe that a strong partnership between home and school is vital for a child's success, and I actively seek to involve and communicate with families to support their children's educational growth.
