Hello! I am so very happy to be teaching here at Sechrist Elementary! This is my ninth year as part of the Sechrist family. I have been teaching young kiddos for over 13 years now and I cannot express how blessed my life is because of it. Teaching is not just a career, it is a choice I make every day to dedicate my time to something important! I believe that all of our futures can be bright, happy, and successful. My goal is to create a passion for learning in a friendly, inviting, and kid-centered environment. I cannot wait for an exciting year with my FANTASTIC FOURTHS!
In my free time, I enjoy getting outdoors, traveling, hiking, photography, eating delicious food, and snuggling animals. I truly believe that life is what should happen when you are busy having fun! I have 3 rescue cats and I will definitely introduce you to each one this year! I love them dearly. I often think about opening an animal sanctuary one day.
I moved up to Flagstaff from Peoria to earn my degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education and I loved northern Arizona so much that I never left! The mountains, pine trees, gorgeous red rocks, and creeks never get boring and I am always finding a new trail or beautiful place to explore. Last summer I was blessed enough to get to explore Belize with my fiance. We kayaked in the ocean, snorkeled with sea turtles and sharks in the coral reef, and explored the jungle and ancient Mayan temples. This summer I get to take a road trip with my dad to visit several national parks and visit family in Wisconsin. I can't wait to share my love of adventure with my kids (our kiddos)!
Like most of you have also experienced, these last few school years have been quite different, challenging, yet, hopefully, still fun and exciting. I will continue to do the best I can to create another fun and successful school year with our new classroom family. I look forward to getting to know all of you and sharing some good stories together!
I can't wait to meet all my new kids and families! Send me an email if you will be in my class this year and tell me something about you :)
I believe that each year can be fun, I believe that everyone can learn, and I believe that it will be exactly what we all make of it! Patience, understanding, compassion, kindness, endurance, and determination will be practiced by ALL to make this year great!
I look forward to our partnership this year :)
Reading is a big deal! Your kiddos will have the opportunity to order books from Scholastic and have them delivered to your home. Here is our class link...let's share the excitement of new books!
