Hello! I am so excited to for this school year! I have been in education for over 16 year and come from a family of educators. I graduated from Arizona State University in education, but see myself as a life long student. As a parent and teacher, I have been connected to Gateway for several years now. I love the school community and students at our school.
This year in 2nd grade is going to be a blast! Get ready to grow academically, socially, and creatively. I believe the characteristics that set students up for success throughout life are learned young. Along with our 2nd grade standards, I believe in encouraging creativity, focus, and grit.
It is important to me to have home and school be as connected as possible. Please, feel free to reach out to me for volunteer opportunities or as guest helpers and speakers. I love when parents come in to support. It takes a village after all.
