This is my 10th year teaching. I have previously taught fifth grade, pre-k, second grade, and special education. I feel that my history allows me to understand where the students start and where they will go in their education. I look forward to this amazing school year with you and your child! It is my mission to prepare students for success at the next level of education and in life. I am passionate about teaching and learning. I received my Master's degree in elementary literacy and reading several years ago. I share my love of reading with my students through helping them see the magic every book holds. When you read, you can go anywhere or be anything. The world is at your fingertips with a good book.
