Hello! This is my third year teaching and my first year at Donaldson. I will be teaching 2nd and 3rd grade Resource this year. I graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2018 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Special Education and Elementary Education. During my college career, I gained teaching experiences in classrooms all the way from Kindergarten through 8th grade. After graduation, I taught special education at a charter middle school in Flagstaff for two years. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy reading, taking walks, biking, listening to music, and going to concerts. This summer, my fiancé and I moved to Tucson and I am loving it so far!
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in elementary school. My parents are both teachers, and I loved playing “teacher” in their classrooms after school. I would pass out blank papers to my invisible “students,” write facts that I had learned on the whiteboard, and pretend to take attendance. I have found that working with real students is a lot more fun than pretending to be a teacher!
My core beliefs are:
- All students have individual strengths and needs. Students learn in different ways, but everybody learns!
- All students deserve to be heard, respected, and valued.
- All students have the potential to change the world.
- We are a team! Collaboration between teachers, families, community members, and students helps ensure the best possible educational experience.
I cannot wait to meet my students and families this year! Starting the year with remote instruction brings challenges, but I want to do everything I can to make it a positive experience.
