I have been teaching primary for 16 years.
I look forward to getting to know my students each year and helping them each bloom in many ways. I hope to challenge each child to shine...teaching self-reflection, goal setting, taking risks, practicing skills daily, celebrating growth, and encouraging others. There are so many important life lessons that pop up as we are trying to all learn together. We are a little family each year.

I enjoy spending time with my family (husband, 2 kids, random animals), playing games (from scrabble to ping pong to cards), cheering on and chauffeuring my kids, working out, traveling, and all things musical. Visit me at http://starsinsecondgrade.blogspot.com/
