Hello, I am very excited to be able to work with your child! Teaching has always been a passion of mine since I was in a little child. I love that I can help another person become successful in their future. Teaching is something that is in my blood.
I am a native of Arizona. I graduated from Ottawa University with a Bachelors Degree in Education in 2002. I have been teaching for 12 years. One of my goals in life was to always go back to school to get my masters degree. I wanted the younger generation in family to see that they can always do the things that they set in mind to do. After teaching for 10 years I did decide to go back to school. I got my Masters Degree from Grand Canyon University in Educational Leadership. I have transitioned from teaching in the classroom, to helping others become successful teachers.
Even though I am not in the classroom teaching, I still enjoy the small opportunities that I get. The most important thing for me is make sure that every child had the right person to help them be successful!

My philosophy is that every child can be successful with support from others.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
One way that I would help a student stay motivated is by encouraging them to always do their best.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would try to reteach the concept or skill in a different way that will help the student build confidence in themselves. I would use manipulatives, videos, etc.
