About Me...

 Staff PhotoFirst and foremost .... I love teaching! I have been teaching for l5 years and have spent most of them in first grade. I decided to challenge myself the past few years by teaching sixth grade. I learned a lot about myself as a teacher, but most importantly I learned that I am meant to teach the primary grades. 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.
