Welcome to first grade!  I can't wait to meet you this year!  I love teaching. It's practically my life! I have been teaching for 27 years and have loved every minute of it. Your child brings so much life into the classroom. We work together as a team. My classroom becomes a learning community.  Parents are the key support system for our team! I have high expectations of all my students and I am willing to go the extra mile to help them be successful. Being a parent is one of the most important jobs we have. Treasure every moment of it.  Check out my newsletter for more class information
