     Dear Parents and Students,

    I am very eager to begin the 2011-12 school year here at Kyrene de la Mirada!Your child is a valued addition to our community of learners, cooperatingand collaborating with his or her peers, and I am dedicated to making thisone of the most successful and positive years your child will experience.

    I have many hobbies, such as reading, cooking, and spending time with myfamily. I have two adult children who attended Kyrene schools. My son __recently got married and lives in the valley, and my daughter __ lives inChicago. My husband and I live in the district and thoroughly enjoy travellingtogether. 

    Professionally, this will be my 24th year teaching. I have taughtfirst, third, fourth, and fifth grades! I graduated with my BAfrom New Mexico State University and received my M. Ed from theUniversity of Phoenix. Taking college and district classes keeps me up-to-dateon the best educational practices. I love learning just as much as I loveteaching!

    Our classroom will be filled with child-centered inquiries where each studentcan reach their potential. Meaningful learning which actively engages thestudents is essential for learning to occur. We will work on individual goals,to respect, and to be risk-takers in our learning environment. Our classroomcommunity will promote a safe atmosphere to ensure that all students have astrong self worth.

    Together, we can help your child have a successful 3rd grade year. I lookforward to strong partnership!
