    About Me: 

    Hello Higley Traditional Families!

    I am happy to to be here at HTA!  I have recently graduated with a Masters in Elementay Education and Certification from NAU.  I come from a long line of educators in my family but it took me longer to join the "family business."  I have always found get joy and fulfillment  in being around and working with children.  I have worked as a substitute in many districts, a para professional and instructional aide with Gilbert Pubic Schools and a PreK teacher in a private preschool.  I am so excited to be in a 3rd grade classroom.

    My teaching philosophy can be summed up by these three phrases; model a growth mindset, respect the individual and expect the best.  I believe in the concepts of a growth mindset and in my class we will focus and what it means to have a growth mindset verus a fixed mindset.  I will also model and expect each member of my class to respect everyone.  I believe that if high but obtainable expecations are set and clearly communicated then growth will occur.

    Outside of school, I am a mother and grandmother with 2 1/2 grandchildren.  My husband and I are empty nesters (for now) and enjoy traveling, biking and hiking together.  I also love to cook and eat!

    I am excited to work with you this year!
