Hello and welcome to the #PodSquad Classroom Information site!

A little fun fact about myself, I LOVE whales, thus, the name of our classroom community is "The Pod Squad." Whales swim in groups called "Pods" and I desire for our class to be a tight knit group of individuals that come together to assist eachother in fostering learning, and growth! We are better together (:

I grew up in Brea, California and attended BIOLA University where I recieved my degree in Education as well as my teaching certificate. I have spent the last 3 years teaching 1st grade, but am extremly excited to join Alexander this year as part of the 2nd grade team! The classroom environment that I desire to create focuses on a growth mindset, student contruction of knowledge, and an antonoumous environment where students have ownership of the type of learning enviornment they would like to have. By the end of the year I desire for my students to be academically, socially, and emotionally prepared for 3rd grade, but especially want them to leave with an instrinsic love and desire for learning! 

Parents, I am so excited to be a part of your team this year. It truly takes a village and I know that you are my greatest resource and support in ensuring that your child succeeds! Thank you so much for all you do each and everyday and I look forward to partnering with you this year!
