Welcome to Learning Lab 7 and welcome to Innovation Academy! I am extremely excited to be a member of the IA family and look forward to meeting each and every one of you! The school year will be filled with many new and exciting experiences and I am happy to be on this journey with you!
This year will be my 18th year of teaching! I have spent the past 11 years teaching Kindergarten at Innovation Academy, Prince Elementary and Rio Vista Elementary here in the Amphitheater School District. Prior to that, I was a first grade teacher at Oyama Elementary for one year, and a kindergarten teacher at Indian Oasis Primary School for five years. If you haven't noticed yet, I LOVE teaching kindergarten students!
Core Educational Beliefs
I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child. We all (teachers, staff, and parents) play an important role in educating students.
