Teaching Experience: I have been an elementary teachers since 1994. Grades I have taught have included kindergarten, first, second and a partial year in fourth grade.
Educational Background: I have a Bachelor's degree from Indiana University, a Master's degree in reading from Western Michigan University, as well as an additional 45 credit hours from various schools focusing on elementary education.
Personal Information: I have three wonderful, energetic children that keep me very busy after the school day. During my free personal time I enjoy to run, spend time with my famly and read.
Classroom Goals: I believe that each learner has great potential and are eager and able to succeed. I set high expectations for each child and work hard with them and their parents to reach those expectations. Students are aware that we are a TEAM within the classroom and we all work together to make everyone a "winner".
Snacks: We will have a mid-morning snack, you may send your child with a small healthy snack each day. Please make sure the student is able to eat it within a few minutes.
As always I look forward to a wonderful, successful year both academically as well as socially. We care, love and learn everyday!
