I am entering my 11th year of teaching (5 at First Grade, 3 at Second Grade, and starting my 3rd at Fourth Grade). I have a passion for learning and teaching. My hope is that I can instill that same thrill for learning in the children that I teach each day. My favorite part of each day is when I see a child grasp a concept that they have worked so hard to understand.
Who I am:
