I am an educator with over 20 years of public school experience in kindergarten and first grade.
I believe it all begins with positive, respectful relationships between my students and me. My teaching style is loving and caring, always thinking about the whole child. I run a structured classroom and have high expectations. My goal is to have happy, engaged students who love learning and have a strong character.

While teaching for 20 awesome years, my second, self-imposed job was creating engaging curriculum materials to use with my students and share with my colleagues. Now that I'm retired, I can spend much more time creating. It makes me very happy! Logo and design by A Little Peace of Africa
