About Me



"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." - Albert Einstein


I have taught 5th grade here in the Sylvania Schools for 17 years.  Having taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7 & 8th grade students at three different districts throughout my career, I can confidently say that Sylvania is the best district to be employed and 5th grade students are my favorite!   I am excited to be working with your children and really making a difference in their lives.


My teaching methodology's main objective is to inspire learning of content through developing skills necessary for students to explore and draw intelligent conclusions independently.  I want to inspire my students to explore content through teamwork with their peers. I also encourage goal setting where appropriate and providing teachable moments through creative lesson planning.
