This is my 16th year working with students. I have a passion for teaching and plan to make this the best year ever for your students!
My Master's Degree is in Early Childhood Education, specializing in reading. I have High expectations for my students as well as for myself. I use a variety of teaching methods, so that each child can accomplish something extraordinary by doing something ordinary. In addition, real-world experiences are incorporated in lessons to promote responsibility and a proactive role in a global society.
My husband and I have been married for 30 years. We have two dynamic daughters. Allison was recently married and is an insurance broker in Atlanta. Katie is currently working in Seattle as a data scientist.
I look forward to an exciting school year and watching each child shine!
