I am originally from University Place, WA and completed my dual Bachelor’s degree from Utah State University in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and Family, Consumer, and Human Development with a minor in Political Science. I am currently working on my masters degree in Learning and Technology. I am beginning my eighth year teaching and love the HR Driggs community!
Philosophy Early childhood is an essential stage in growth and development where learning and lifelong skills are developed. I use the Piaget and Vygotsky principle of constructivism to guide my instruction and theories on developmentally appropriate learning. It is critical for children to be actively engaged in constructing their own knowledge. Students should feel free to express themselves and share their unique abilities with those around them without fear of rejection or ridicule. Each child has something important to contribute to the overall success and enjoyment of the classroom. Let’s make every learning moment count in these little ones early years of education!
