Philosophy of Education

I find teaching to be the profession of professions. At every level we as educators strive to build relationships which enable us to reach every single child. Building the proper relationship ensures that each and every student gets exactly what they need to be successful. I am also a strong believer that as educators it is also our responsibility to further our own education and to grow as individuals. There are many different ways we can grow including philosophically, educationally, and spiritually, to name a few. 


Personal Statement

I graduated from Lindenwood University in St. Charles. I’ve had many roles in Hazelwood including substitute teacher, building Aide, teacher’s aide, and then onto my own classroom. I am invested in Florissant as a lifelong resident and working in the community I live is important to me. I love participating in sports, outdoors activities, and motivation. I am thrilled to be a part of the family here at Brown, and look forward to getting to better know my class and the rest of the Brown Family.
