    Teaching Experience
    Ive been teaching at Howard-Ellis since 2006. I taught for 3 years at Ellis in a 1st grade classroom before moving across the field to Howard where I currently teach 3rd grade. Prior to my employment with Niles Community Schools, I taught kindergarten and 1st grade with Benton Harbor Area Schools.
     
    Educational Background
    I received my Bachelors degree in teaching from Western Michigan University and completed my master's degree in Reading Literacy from University of Phoenix.  Teaching was not my first career with a business degree from SMC, I worked in the business field for nearly 25 years before going back to follow my heart and become a teacher.

    Planners:
    Planners are completed each day with the activities completed at school.  Planners should be signed each evening and returned the next day.  Our goal is to help promote responsibility in 3rd grade.  If a student does not have a signed planner, they will lose part of their recess.  
     
    Snacks:
    We have snack time each day.  Please send a HEALTHY snack for your child.  We sometimes have breakfast items that students did not want and those are available to students but their may not always be something available.
