Greetings!

I am excited to be part of IACS family! Teaching is my new journey and I am thrilled to take on this exciting part of my life! My two amazing children and supportive husband were my motivation for following my dream of teaching. This is my first year of officially teaching, but I have been in the educational field for five years and have had the opportunity to co-teach in various aspects of development; general education, special education, gifted programs, and speech pathology. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education at the University of Phoenix. My goal is to fulfill students with the same passion for learning and drive to be successful as I carry. I am enthusiastic about exploring the world through Arts and STEM learning!

"The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge, but to create the possibilities for child to invent and discover, to create men that are capable of doing new things (Jean Piaget)." It is my goal to teach students to love learning through engagement and exploration. For students to become aware of their strengths and realize all the opportunities they can uncover through determination and self discipline.

I look forward to a fulfilling and successful year for myself and my students!
