Bio

I can’t believe this is my eleventh year teaching! I am a proud Magna Cum Laude graduate with a B.A. in Psychology who went on to pursue my teaching certification in Social Studies, Middle Grades Reading and English Language Arts, as well as Special Education. In my eleven years of teaching I have worked with all grades from pre-K to eighth. Five years ago I was lucky enough to find my passion of helping students transition from elementary to middle school expectations in the sixth grade. As children are discovering more about themselves and their changing role in this world, I feel so blessed to be called to guide them in reading and critical thinking skills that they will be able to carry with them on whatever path in life they choose to follow. It is also my goal to help them work in written and verbal communication that will help them address a multitude of audiences in a manner that deserves attention and respect. I have three wonderful children of my own from ages eighteen down to seven. I mention them to say this—having my own children has helped me further see a unique set of talents in each child. I look at my classroom as a second home where we can work to build on our strengths and address our weaknesses. One of my favorite mottos is, “Know where you want to go, and work with what you’ve got to get there!” I can’t wait to work with you and your child this year!
