Welcome to fourth grade! We are going to create an exciting, collaborative learning environment filled with critical thinking skills in various subject areas. This is my fifth year teaching in fourth grade, and I absolutely love teaching fourth graders! I also taught first and second grades for several years before moving to fourth grade. I have a Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist and have earned National Board Teacher Certification. I am married with two sons, one in middle school and one in high school, so I enjoy staying busy with their after school activities. In addition to keeping my mind sharp, I also enjoy challenging group exercise classes at the YMCA.
I look forward to getting to know the students and families in our class this year! Open communication is extremely important and beneficial for each child's success. The best and quickest way to communicate with me is through e-mail. I check it several times throughout the school day. You will also receive a weekly e-mail from me each week detailing our learning goals and providing any other pertinent information for the week.
