Welcome to Our Classroom 
    My Goals:

    My goal as a teacher is to motivate, inspire, encourage, and support students by providing a safe, secure and nurturing environment. It is also my goal to guide them socially, emotionally, and cognitively so they can continue to build a foundation for life-long learning.

    My Beliefs:

    I understand that parents are the primary educators and believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success.

    I believe students learn best through hands-on activities and in a safe environment that promotes learning.

    I believe educators should provide multiple opportunities for students to grow physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively as individuals and with their peers.

    I believe learning should be meaningful and should build connections to prior knowledge or experiences.

    I believe children learn differently, but all children are able to learn.

    I believe that learning is a fantastic journey that will never end.
    About Me 
    I am currently working on a Master's in Special Education. I am advocating for all children. With all my heart I believe all children can learn; it is just up to us to unlock their potential.
    I am married and a mother two. My family is my greatest inspiration and support.  I also have several four-legged friends. Two dogs, two guinea pigs, a hedgehog, a chinchilla, along with a 55-gallon fish tank complete our family. I love the outdoors, gardening, photography, and swimming.
    I look forward to learning all about your family.
    It is going to be a spectacular year.
