This is my 7th year in 1st grade. I LOVE my job! The planning, prep, and delivery are exciting opportunities to inspire children. I have also taught Pre-K and Kindergarten as well as an interim in 5th grade math.
I use a variety of resources to integrate content areas and supplement system purchased curriculum. I encourage thinking and problem solving in my classroom and LOVE to see my students' growth.

I married my husband 18 years ago in Jamaica. We have had several adventures together over the years; including pregnancies, traveling, moving, and my additional schooling. I am blessed by his endless support and encouragement. I enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom of two boys for 10 years before returning to the classroom. We now have 2 teenagers that keep us busy with soccer, rock climbing, and band activities!
