Defining Moment in Education:

 

My defining moment in education has evolved due to the recent events in our world. With Covid 19 closing schools last spring and the force to learn how to be an effective online educator, I have myself found myself motivated and ready to enter this new phase of education. 

 

Core Education Beliefs:

- I believe all students have the ability to learn and I love the journey of watching students grow over a year.

- I believe in teaching not only the content but how to solve problems and apply knowledge to life.

 

Hobbies and interests:

I love to travel, cook, plant succulents and do anything athletic. 

 

This year, we have a student teacher from the University of Arizona. Her name is Akia Warrior. Ms. Warrior is a graduate student who got her degree in exercise science. Ms. Warrior plays volleyball for the Wildcats.
