I am about to begin the 26th year of my teaching journey! I currently teach first grade and have done so for 10 years now and I absolutely LOVE IT!
I work hard to make learning fun for my students while planning carefully to meet their varying needs. I do this through small group instruction and hands-on learning.

I earned my BA in Early Childhood Education in 1989. In 1999 I earned my MS in Curriculum and Instruction. I am currently working on obtaining my Gifted Education endorsement.
