Educational Philosophy:

     I believe that all students should be confident, feel successful, and enjoy being at school.  As teachers it is our responsibility to give students learning strategies and encouragement to help them feel this way daily.  Creating a positive atmosphere for all students will help our students feel and be successful in school.  Parent involvement is also an important part of a child's success.  I believe we need to make parents aware of their child's success and their struggles to better help and encourage each individual child.


Westside Elementary

Our mission is to provide quality instruction that adheres to high standards and high expectations in order to produce students who take ownership of their learning and that are college and career ready to successfully participate in the 21st century.


I am so excited to begin the 2019-2020 school year at Westside Elementary!  I look forward to meeting and working with you and all your children this year.
