I am so blessed to be a part of the Pioneer family. Arcade Elementary really is the Best. School. Ever.! I have been teaching many years and have taught everything from UPK to Second Grade. I'm really excited to be teaching First Grade. The amount of physical and cognitive growth that occurs in First Grade is astounding!
My family and I live in Springville and enjoy being outdoors, listening to music, playing games, and watching/playing soccer and lacrosse. We spend lots of time volunteering in our community in a variety of ways. Teaching and learning are my FAVORITE things to do and I stretch myself and find ways to do them each and every day. I desire to cultivate that excitement in my students as well.
One great quote is "Children are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate!" In our classroom I model and foster kindness and caring, understanding and accepting, learning and growing, persevering and striving.
I look forward to a wonderful year filled with fun, exploration, discovery, creativity, and learning....all as we stretch our minds together.
