Welcome Back to the 2021-2022 School Year! I'm so happy we are able to start the year off in person and in a much closer-to-normal fashion than last year!
I am a Special Education resource teacher at Edison for students in grades 3, 4, and 5 this year who need a little extra help with reading, writing, mathematics, and occasionally, social skills and regulating emotions. This is my 15th year working with Mesa Public Schools, but my fifth year at Edison and I'm always excited to be an Eagle and to work with the teachers and students here. In Special Education, our goal is to keep the students in classes with their peers as much as possible, while also ensuring they are getting individual help with whatever their specific needs may be in order to help them make as much progress as possible.
My Bachelor's Degree (from the University of Wyoming) is in elementary education. Over the years, I've acquired additional endorsements and certificates specializing in Special Education for students with varying types of disabilities. I also have endorsements in English as a Second Language and Reading. I completed my Master's Degree at ASU in the area of Language and Literacy.
In addition, I am a National Board Certified Teacher for students with Exceptional Needs.
I've always believed in the absolute necessity for students to continue to build their reading skills because reading is so key to success in so many areas of our students' lives. I hope my students learn to enjoy books as much as I do - so I regularly share many of my favorite books with students in class in hopes that they will learn to enjoy books as well.
The academic demands for our students continue to increase, and given what we've all experienced in the last 16 months, the emotional and social demands keep changing as well. Along with all of the staff at Edison, I want to ensure we are doing our best to provide what your child needs to help them grow.
I communicate to families through Class DoJo throughout the year, and I encourage you to reach out to me through this platform. If you are unable to access me through DoJo, please send me an e-mail through the link on this page and I will respond within 24 hours. I will be checking my e-mail throughout the workday Monday through Friday, and generally, at least 2 times during the weekends, unless I am out of town or something. The phone number listed above is to my classroom. Generally, I am unable to answer outside calls during the school day, but you can leave a voicemail and I will return your calls.
Please stay healthy and safe!
