Houston Elementary School
Hello and welcome to kindergarten at Houston Elementary! This year we will read, write, build, experiment, sing, laugh, share, count, play, explore, measure, explain, wonder, discover, and learn! I am very excited about the new school year. We are going to have an awesome year of learning!
I am very excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher! It is my mission to build on your child's strengths while instilling a love for learning. My classroom is a nurturing environment in which your child will feel successful and proud!
I have been teaching kindergarten for 11 years. I taught for 4 years at Granada Primary in Phoenix and 7 years at Children First Academy in Tempe. This is my first year at Houston. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood. Then I received a Master's degree from Northern Arizona University in 2008 in Elementary Education, and in 2010 in Early Childhood with an emphasis in teaching English as a Second Language, and then a Master's degree from Arizona State University in 2013 in Teaching and Instruction with an emphasis on Gifted Education.
I am originally from Southern
but moved to Arizona in 1998. I have a
4 year old
son, whom I adopted from Ethiopia as a
9 month old
. I enjoy spending time with him and my family and friends. I like to travel as much as I am able to, and read and watch movies in my free time. I am very excited to be here
Houston and I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child!
