I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Arizona Christian University. I am excited to continue to be a part of the fabulous third grade team here at Nichols Sawmill.
I believe that every student can learn with the proper support and direction. I desire to offer your children exactly that this year! I have a passion for education and I am excited to share that with you. In my classroom, we will work together as a team to accomplish our goals. Our lessons will include creative activities, whole brain strategies, and fun, engaging lessons. These are aspects of education that I value and intend to incorporate in the classroom.
I believe that homework should be used to practice what is learned in the classroom. Your child will not be doing "busy work" at home. I will send home work that is beneficial and engaging. Your child will be working on reading skills and math topics that we are focused on in class. One of the most important things you can be doing with your child is reading everyday. I encourage nightly reading for at least twenty minutes.
I believe that the education of your child depends on what they do at home and at school. I would love to have you volunteer or support our class in any way. If you ever have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.
