  • I am so excited to be a part of the Thanksgiving Elementary School family!! This year will be my nineteenth year in education which feels crazy to me because the time has literally flown by!  I have been a part of JCS as a teacher and parent since 2007.  I am happily married with three amazing kiddos.  My two youngest will be joining me at Thanksgiving as 4th and 5th graders.  My oldest is headed to middle school this year! 


    I am extremely passionate about partnering with parents and caregivers to empower students to grow both academically and social-emotionally. When students enter my room, they become a part of my family.  My goal is that every one of my students feel safe, loved, and believed in.  I look forward to an amazing year! Go Buffaloes!!
