My Students

I teach in a low-income district in Phoenix, Arizona. My students are passionate, positive, and always pushing their limits! I am very proud to be their teacher! I look forward to each day I spend with them.

We are big on character education in the classroom; from using the "Bucket Filling" teachings to community service on campus, I believe my students are capable of anything they set their minds to.

Growth is important in the classroom and my students are always setting personal goals to become their best selves.

My Project

As a child, I dreamed of being a teacher; I spent hours playing school with my stuffed animals and creating lessons for my "students." Years later, I am at a point in my career where I want to go for the gold! I want to attend the Ron Clark Academy and become a master teacher.

I teach the absolute best students in Arizona!

My students are a big family, and I want to include them in this special journey, as it involves the teacher and their students. This unique academy will teach me the best practices in education and help me reach all types of learning so that each student experiences success. I will learn strategies for engagement and ways to encourage growth from all. It will help students make significant gains in their educational journey. I need the boost to get started!
