I am a graduate of the Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. Since graduating I have taught and coached both students as well as teachers in all levels of elementary school. My work has been primarily in Title 1 schools and with many students who are learning English as a second language. In the past two years I have worked as a Math Interventionist and Instructional Coach supporting students to accelerate their achievement as well as supporting teachers in best practices for assisting struggling students and enriching high performing student success. This past year I worked as an OSPI Math Fellow for the Puget Sound Region and currently hold a Washington State Teaching Certificate as well as working towards a National Board Certification.
My passion lies in building foundations for students, regardless of their station of understanding, so that they have the confidence and drive to accelerate their achievement. Every child deserves access to an equitable education and as an educator, I strive to provide quality support to every student. Above all, learning should be fun! I believe it both motivates and inspires. I enjoy encouraging students to take control of their own learning and it begins with self confidence. In my spare time, I love drawing My Little Pony pictures with my daughter and watching my son bravely transition from crawling to a very shaky walk! It is a very exciting “work in progress!”
I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you and your child. I am confident that with rigorous and engaging encouragement we will together accelerate academic achievement as well as cultivate a love of learning.
