Hello! I am so very happy to be teaching here at Sechrist Elementary! This is my seventh year as part of the Sechrist family. I have been teaching young kiddos for over 11 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 4 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 never get old and I am always finding a new trail or beautiful place to explore. This summer I was supposed to get married, travel, honeymoon, and see my family in Wisconsin. I did not get to do any of that, but I am still planning those adventures and they will be just as exciting when they do happen. I really tried to make the most of these crazy times through hiking, camping, practicing yoga, and learning a lot about teaching and learning online.
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!
I know that this year will be different but I believe that it can be fun, I believe that everyone can learn, and I believe that it will be exactly what we make of it! Patience, understanding, compassion, kindness, endurance, and determination will be practiced by ALL.
I look forward to our partnership in our student's education :)
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!
