I provide daily math replacement for qualifying students in fourth, fifth, and sixth grade as well as daily English language arts replacement for qualifying students in sixth grade. In addition to an accelerated curriculum, students will get a chance to work on their problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills through various games and activities as well as to further develop their math and ELA skills through real-world projects. For more information about the district's gifted education program, please check out the GPS Gifted Education page.
I grew up in the Scottsdale School District and was a part of both their pull-out gifted program and advanced placement classes. Upon graduating Coronado High School in 2002 I attended ASU where I graduated in 2007 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I graduated from Grand Canyon University in March of 2013 with a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership and I am currently a doctoral Student at GCU with an anticipated graduation in 2017.
Upon graduating ASU I began my career in the Roosevelt School District teaching first and third grade, both general and cluster classes. While there I attended a variety of professional development opportunities as I worked towards obtaining my gifted endorsement. Since leaving Roosevelt in 2011 I have utilized my gifted endorsement by working as a self-contained gifted teacher as well as a pull-out gifted specialist. After taking a year off to stay home to care for my three young children upon the birth of my son in 2014 I am excited to be a part of the team at Settler's Point!
Besides my career, my family is also very important to me. I married my high school sweetheart in December in 2006 and we now have three wonderful children, Nichole, Daniella, and Alexander. Also considered part of our family is Zaria, our Chihuahua-Terrier mix, Lily, our Labrador Retriever mix, and our two cats Ludo and Bella.
