Hello and welcome to Kindergarten at Lone Mountain Elementary School! I am so excited to have you and your student be a part of our classroom community! This will be my 5th year teaching at LMES, and I look forward to many more. I attended Arizona State University (go devils!) and graduated in 2017 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I did my student teaching in the Cave Creek Unified School District and have been here ever since. I am so proud to be a part of the Lone Mountain family! Eagles SOAR to Success!

Education is a vital tool that can teach young minds the fundamental skills that are needed to live successfully, confidently, and informed in today's day and age. Ever since I could remember, I have wanted to be a person who can have that strong impact on children's lives, and today I make that dream happen while loving every minute of it. Through hands-on exploration, active engagement, and personalized learning, my students not only become life-long learners, but they will learn to love learning.
As a teacher, it is my role to facilitate a learning environment that is a brave/safe space for all types of learners, all while setting high standards and obtainable expectations. In my classroom we learn that mistakes are portals of discovery and that we always try our hardest to strive for improvements each day. We treat each other with kindness, inclusivity, and fairness in order to encourage ourselves and others to soar to success.
In the wise words of Mike Armiger, "Inclusive education is essential because, through extending our imaginations into another person's world whose experiences we may not share, we learn to empathize and connect." Those are skills worth teaching our young people.
