Bachelor of Arts Elementary Education Arizona State University Child Life Certification
Hi, my name is Ms. Dalinka and it is my sincere delight to introduce myself as your child’s teacher this school year! I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and came to Arizona to attend Arizona State University. I graduated from ASU with the highest of honors and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Elementary and Special Education. I also earned a certificate as a Child Life Specialist. I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of the wonderful Lone Mountain community! In my free time, I enjoy snowboarding, traveling, sports and spending time with my family and friends. I am thrilled to begin a new school year at Lone Mountain, and to partner with you to guide your child as they learn and grow! Let the learning begin!

My Educational Philosophy
I believe my role as a teacher is to nurture and encourage the lifelong learning of my students. Through hands-on activities, classroom discussion, and even the use of humor, I hope to prompt students to think creatively and explore their natural curiosity. I try to create a classroom environment that fosters self-esteem. Through positive reinforcement, realistic goal setting, and constant monitoring of children's achievements and struggles, I am able to help a child develop at their own pace. Creating a welcoming space for learning is so important, especially for the youngest learners. As an elementary teacher, I am acutely aware that I am defining the school experience for my students. I work hard to make that experience a positive, nurturing one.
