Summer Plans:

I am very excited about the numerous trips my family and I have planned for the summer.  We are going to Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, trout fishing and glacier hiking in Alaska, and hiking in Acadia National Park.  Additionally, I am excited that my best friend and I will get to experience all things Friends with the Friends Experience in Atlanta. 

Not only will I plan to have fun this summer, I do plan to work on preparing for YOU in the Fall.  I am excited about the 2021-22 school year.  

Class Motto:

I believe in the power of YET!

All About Me:
I am married and I have two wonderful children and a son-in-love. I love to spend time with family and friends. Some of my hobbies include: baking, reading, and going to the movies. I love traveling and exploring new places.

Educational Philosophy:

I believe that every child is one-of-a-kind and each child learns differently. As a veteran educator, I believe in creating an environment that is conducive for all students to grow emotionally, socially, and intellectually. I also believe in having high expectations for my students, where they can ponder questions while using their natural curiosity to promote their own learning. I am very excited to share in your child's fifth grade year of learning and discovery.
