Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to my classroom!
This is my first year at Desert Sage and my first year as a classroom teacher. Back in 2005 I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I was then a stay at home mom for many years to my four boys. When my youngest was 2 years old I ran a preschool out of my home and did that for 3 years. I also taught English online to children in China for 4 years. This is where I discovered I had a passion for teaching children ages 8-12. I just love this age group! I decided to go back to school and I just graduated with a Masters degree in Teaching, as well as my K-8 credential. I have also substituted for the past 2 years and was able to be a long term substitute last year in a third grade class. I discovered that I LOVE 3rd grade!
I plan on creating an environment of safety and trust in which students can be challenged to learn to their greatest potential. Learning should be fun! I love to learn and I hope to pass that on to each of my students. This year is going to be fantastic! I can't wait to get started.
