I am a certified teacher with a Masters in Elementary Education for grades 1-8. I have a Bachelors degree in Classics from the University of Arizona.
I realized that I loved teaching after being a substitute teacher for three years. This gave me experience in teaching all subjects for grades K-12. I made the decision to attend the NAU Elementary Education program. The education I received at NAU was so valuable since many of the instructors were teachers at other schools themselves.
During my student teaching, I was fortunate to get an opportunity to work with Title 1 students in the areas of Math and Reading. This experience encouraged me to get a reading endorsement.
I feel that every student has the ability to learn and grow. Each student has their own learning style. A teacher must tap into this learning style. I love working with students and helping them achieve their goals.
