Gifted 1st Grade Teacher

My Why Story

While raising my children in Colorado, I had a small family day care and taught Sunday school for young children.  I noticed that each child had a different learning style and varying social emotional needs.  This inspired me to return to university to research gifted children and their unique needs. After my family relocated to Illinois, I taught first/second grade gifted children.  When the school founder expanded to create another school, she asked me to come along on the journey. I have been at that school for the last 24 years. I made an abrupt decision in May this year to retire and move to AZ to be close to my grandchildren, but after endearing experiences with my students’ families, I felt that my work teaching was not yet finished. At STCS I received a warm reception from staff and have discovered this is the perfect match for me and my philosophy of nurturing/teaching children. I look forward with joy to this next chapter in my life here at San Tan.
