Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to work with you and a great bunch of third graders this year. It's going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventures. I will be here to help your child through this academically rigorous year and will work hard to ensure that his/her learning experiences are challenging and meaningful. This is my 11th year of teaching! I taught 4th grade in Pennsylvania and 1st grade in Virginia. This is my fifth year teaching 3rd grade at Southside and I couldn’t be more excited to be able to work at such a wonderful elementary school. I attended Kutztown University and received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education K-6. I continued on to obtain my Master’s degree in Reading K-12. I am also certified to teach middle level English and I have my ESOL certification. My hobbies include traveling, going to the beach, reading, working out, and enjoying time with my husband, Chris, and my son, Parker. My favorite color is purple and my favorite place is Walt Disney World. That’s where my husband and I got married! I absolutely love teaching and it is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year together!
Southside's vision is to prepare our students to become life-long learners. Our mission is to use data driven instruction and progress monitoring to ensure
the academic achievement and success of all students. My hope is to guide your child to become individually responsible, confident, and self-sufficient.
I am committed to helping students become the best learners they can be.
