Welcome, 3rd graders, to The Greatest School! This will be my 14th year teaching and third here at WCES. This year is shaping up to be the best one yet! I will be teaching PBL science and social studies to all third grade students over the course of the year. I am excited that the school and third grade teachers have chosen to support me in this innovative approach to learning.
Outside of school, I am a mother of two girls who both go to school here- Emily is in 4th grade and Katelyn is in 1st. I have a husband, Mike. I have a pet dog, two cats, two hermit crabs, and a turtle- George- who hangs out here in our classroom. I love to read, and paint. I also run, hike, and cycle. I'm newly into yoga! I LOVE coffee, peaches, and cherries.
Teaching is my passion. I love what I do and my goal this year is to give my students the tools to be motivated self-learners. Thank you for your support in this.
With much love,
