Welcome to my class! I look forward to spending our school year with your student. I have my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and my Masters Degree is in Educational Technology. I hold endorsements in reading, technology, gifted education, and early childhood. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, A Multi-Age 1st/2nd Gifted Cluster Combination Class, and I have been an Instructional Coach aiding teachers perfect their craft. I returned to the classroom as I missed the daily interactions with students. I am currently the Math Intervention specialist on campus and I teach Math 180 and math intervention classes.
I am a Arizona native, have been married for 37 years, have three adult sons, and four grandchildren. My three sons attended Mountain Shadows and are graduates of DVUSD. Needless to say, I am invested in Deer Valley Schools, especially Mountain Shadows. I have high expectations in the classroom, as I believe all students are capable of learning and we strive to make the most of their learning.
Students will be working independently, in partners, in small groups, and in large groups. My classroom expectations are simple: Treat others as you would like to be treated and know/apply/ follow the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Not sure what the Habits are??? Ask your student as they should be able to recite the habits and explain their meaning.
The quickest way to contact me is through the Remind App. Instructions to join our class are below. Please try it as I have found past parents love the convenience of using the app. I respond to email as quickly as possible. The distract standard is to respond within 48 hours. It rarely takes me more than a few hours (if that long) to respond. If you need me to know something ASAP or need a reply quicker than email, please use the Remind App. I look forward to our year together. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
