Welcome to an important year for your child! I promise you that I will do everything I can to make it successful, but your participation and your child's attention are important ingredients. I encourage you to contact me with any questions, clarifications and concerns. My school email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.I graduated from Appalachian State University and have been teaching for 30 years.I attained National Board Certification in 1998 and renewed that in 2008. I love to see children concentrate...and then "light up" when they understand!
