I have been teaching Kindergarten for 20 years, and both my high school children have gone through Spectrum! My students learn independence and build self esteem through daily routines that I establish in the beginning of the school year. The Kindergartners gain a wealth of academic knowledge and grow socially and emotionally as well. By second quarter they are sounding out words and beginning to write short sentences on their own. We enjoy a fun filled educational year that is the foundation of Elementary school!
I attended ASU, receiving a BA in Early Childhood Development, and my MA is in Multi-Cultural Education from NAU. In my spare time I read and attend my high school children's sporting events. I also work at a home decor boutique in Gilbert called Rod Works.
