DonorsChoose is a website where friends, family, and anonymous donors can donate to our classroom! I have had one project fully funded and will likely make another as the year goes on. Feel free to share this link!
A Quote to Live (And Teach!) By:
“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” - Maria Montessori
Core Education Beliefs:
I believe inclusivity, community, and a sense of safety and comfort are the most key things a teacher can provide in a classroom. I also believe that all students can and will learn, regardless of their background. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is also very important, without basic needs being met, a child is much harder to reach.
Things I Enjoy Outside of School:
I love to go hiking, especially when I visit family in Oregon! I also enjoy reading mystery fiction and playing DnD. Quality time with loved ones and my pets is a must!
I have taught in TUSD and was in a second-grade classroom at the most diverse elementary school in Southern Arizona.
