I am excited to start my 8th year. Over the years I have had the pleasure of getting to know so many great kids and families. I am excited about this year's class and can't wait to get to know my students better. The biggest challenge I face every year is getting students to get out of their comfort zone and take risks. We learn from our mistakes and failures. I want them to be independent thinkers and problem solvers. They will claim I am not helping them and they can't do it, but I know how much they are capable of. I am there to catch them when they fall, but I want them to try on their own first. I am hoping this website can provide a place for news, information, and updates. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org 815-844-3687.
