Welcome to Kindergarten! It is my desire to partner with parents to give their children a wonderful experience in their first year of school. One of my favorite parts of teaching is designing learning experiences based on each student's unique learning styles and needs. It is incredibly rewarding to witness my students demonstrate social, intellectual, and academic growth throughout the year. My hope is that each of my students leaves Kindergarten with a solid foundation of knowledge, an enthusiasm for taking on challenges, and a love for learning.
I was born and raised in Gilbert and studied Early Childhood Education with a minor in Spanish at Oklahoma State University. This is my 4th year teaching Kindergarten at Val Vista Lakes Elementary, and I have loved being part of this wonderful community. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, swimming, reading, and spending time with my family.
