All about me

 Hi, I am the 4th grade teacher at New World Educational Center

This is my third year teaching at New World. I previously taught in the middle school grades but 4th grade has quickly become my favorite grade to teach. I have one child who also attends New World.

I received my BA from Illinois State University. I also have experience in Montessori Education.

I have been fortunate to live in many great places including Chicago IL, Honolulu HI, Miami FL, Auckland New Zealand, and now Scottsdale AZ. I have also spent 2 summers in Costa Rica which is one of my favorite places to visit during summer vacation. 

I believe in empowering students to believe in themselves. I believe all students can succeed with high expectations for themselves. I have led Youth Empowerment programs around the valley and also host an Emotional Empowerment facebook page and group. One of my strongest attributes as a teacher is creating a learning environment where every child feels welcomed, loved, and supported.

I greatly look forward to creating amazing moments and memories during the 2018-2019 school year!
