I currently teach third grade at a parochial school in Wisconsin. I am thoroughly enjoying the wonderful things that a small school brings. I have taught second and fourth grade and before teaching had a fabulous job in our local middle school. I love my middle school students!
I believe that learning should be fun. The best compliment that I have ever had came from a parent whose daughter was disappointed that it was Saturday because there was no school!

I have been teaching my entire life and have been in the classroom for 10 years. I was a little girl who didn't like school and didn't want to go. I always said that if I had my own classroom that it would be a safe, fun, bright room where above all else my students knew that I loved them and that they could learn. I believe I have such a room.
I am the mother of three adult children, one with special needs, and the proud grandma of one precious little granddaughter. I enjoy reading, writing, and above all creating. "Through God all things are possible."
