I love teaching at Stapley Junior High and to being part of such an outstanding team of teachers. We have wonderful students and our goal is to help them increase their achievement here at school.
I have been teaching Science for 14 years. I graduated from Ottawa University in 2004, with a degree in Elementary Education. I also attended Northern Arizona University and graduated in May 2009 with a Master's Degree in Multicultural Bilingual Education. I enjoy teaching Science and believe in hands on learning.
I have been involved in an engineering based program through ASU and worked with students to implement an afterschool program. Additionally I have been trained in AVID strategies in order to help individual students be successful with a rigorous curriculum and I apply those strategies in Science. I also was trained in the new 3 Dimensional Science Standards at the state level and was part of a team that wrote curriculum for teachers in Arizona and am excited to bring this experience to my classroom.
I am committed to helping each of my students meet their educational goals. I welcome parents into my classroom at anytime. I am excited to work with the great group of students that I have this year!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
