Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 6th grade! I am so excited to be your teacher during your final year at Country Springs Elementary. This will be my 11th year teaching and my 6th year teaching 6th grade! I am a lifelong learner and am always looking for ways to learn and grow. I attended Chapman University where I earned my Bachelor's degree, Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Masters in Education (Curriculum and Foundations). I also have two Montessori Teaching Credentials (Lower Elementary & Upper Elementary) and have taught grades 3rd-6th at a Montessori School. I have been continuing my learning and most recently earned my Administrative Services Credential.
Our classroom is a safe and nurturing community of unique individuals where we will respect, encourage and support one another. We will grow and learn by challenging ourselves and always understand that along the way mistakes are ok, because mistakes are opportunities to learn. Expectations include being responsible, independent and an active participant, that respectfully collaborates with others. I am excited to be a part of your educational journey and will be here to guide, support and encourage you along the way.
