Welcome to Fourth Grade!
The 2020-2021 school year will be different but I am ready to be back in the classroom teaching face to face. I am passionate about making connections with my students and love the subjects I teach - Gifted Math and Science. I am excited to be team teaching with Maria Bickel this year. Maria will be teaching English/Language Arts and Social Studies. Both of our classes will use Class Dojo, a positive behavior system. It is a great way to keep up with what is going on in our classes. Although we have been one-to-one with technology in our classroom in the past, this year our laptops are being used for students learning virtual through Aiken Innovate. We should be receiving laptops by the end of September according to the district. This year Mrs. Bickel and I will be switching into each others' classrooms instead of the students switching classrooms. Students will also maintain their own classroom supplies rather than community supplies.
HHE is embarking on its fourth year of the Leader in Me. As a Lighthouse Team Coordinator, I am excited to help lead and track school and student achievement. Tracking student data with kids is one of my favorite things to do. There is nothing more satisfying than helping kids monitor their progress and achieve their goals. This year we will continue learning how to be proactive and will embrace the 7 habits of effective leaders.
When I'm not at Hammond Hill, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have three daughters who all attended HHE, as did my husband and myself! All three of my daughters are teachers! My oldest, Katie, teaches 3rd grade at Belvedere Elementary. Heather teaches 5K at Belvedere and my youngest daughter is a 3rd grade teacher at Mossy Creek. Teaching is a family passion. I'm an avid football fan and love playing tennis in my spare time.
The fastest and easiest way to reach me is through Class Dojo. I'm always open for communication. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
I'm looking forward to a fabulous year!
