Defining Moment in Education: After volunteering in my own children's classrooms, I learned that I loved helping children. I knew that I belonged in the classroom every day!
Core Educational Belief: John Dewey said, "What the best and wisest parent wants for his own child, that must we want for all the children of the community. Anything less is narrow and unlovely, and left unchecked, destroys our democracy." I have strived to live these words. All students deserve the opportunity to learn and grow at their own pace. Kindergarten is their beginning. It is my honor and privilege to start my students' educational journey!
Prior Experience: I have taught kindergarten or first grade in the Amphitheater School District for 15 years. Prior to teaching, I was a director of Children's Ministries. I was fortunate to be a stay at home mom until my children began school.
