Welcome to Innovation Academy! This is my third year teaching at Innovation and I love every minute of it.
Defining Moment in Education
I love school and I have always loved school. That love is why I became a teacher. I knew from a very young age that teaching is what I was meant to do. My defining moment in education didn't come until much later educational career. That moment was the moment I stepped into the arena at Eastern New Mexico University to receive my Bachelor's degree. The band was playing the graduation march and I don't remeber every feeling more proud of myself or more excited to begin somthing new. I had finally accomplished what I had been working towards for almost my whole life. I hope every student that I have worked with and will work with in the future is able to have the same experience.
Core Educational Beliefs
I believe that every student can learn and be successful in the classroom. Each child's learning needs are unique and as a teacher I strive to recognize unique needs and teach with this principle in mind. I very strongly believe in hand-on and active learning. This year, and every year, I will work closely with my colleagues to ensure that every child's specific learning needs are met.
