My passion for education has lead me to become a teacher. I have experience teaching in the public schools for the past five years as a certified teacher, and before that I worked as an instructional assistant and preschool teacher. I hold a Master's degree from ASU and a Bachelor's from NAU. I am a certified educator for both elementary (k-8) and special education (cross-categorical). With most of my experience in special education, I understand the importance of differentiated instruction. I believe that curriculums should be tailored to meet individual students' needs in order to be effective. I do not use a one size fits all approach. I will use research-based techniques to help your student grasp the material. I specialize in elementary subjects and interventions such as reading, writing, math, science and social studies. I have access to the current standards and I will implement them with fidelity. I look forward to helping students meet their education goals.
