First and foremost .... I love teaching! I cannot believe that I am beginning my 20th year in education. I have taught sixth grade and second grade, but my heart is in first grade. I have my Master's degree in Teaching and Learning, but I must admit that most of what I learn comes from the boys and girls that I get to spend my day with.
Started Working at NLSD:
I am happily married to my husband Tom. Together we have 2 beautiful daughters ... Madelyn (11) and Macy (9). We also have a furry baby named Cooper and recently rescued a puppy named Scout.
Favorite Thing About Teaching:
My students of course! I love all the personalities that fill my room everyday. Every student has a different life experience and different ideas that make our classroom unique.
