I am thrilled to be teaching your 5th grader this year! This will be my sixth year teaching at Blackford. Go, Bobcats!
?I encourage all students to be creative with their work, and curious about what is going on in our local community and global world. I believe that education is a lifelong process. I strive to prepare and empower all students for college and career success, and to be globally competitive in the 21st century workplace. In doing so, I aim to design dynamic learning experiences in a positive, innovative and technology-rich learning environment - centered around student collaboration, communication, critical thinking and problem solving.
I received my Bachelor's of Science degree and Teaching Credential from San Jose State University. Outside of the classroom, I can usually be found exploring and appreciating the outdoors, most often on two wheels.
