I love being active with my family and friends. I love to hike, do yoga, play tennis, garden, go to movies (popcorn is a must,) and eat at all sorts of local restaurants. Laughing and finding joy in every day is what it is all about.
My favorite quote for my classroom is
Behold the mighty turtle. For he makes progress only when he sticks his neck out. James Bryan Conant
I teach all subjects for 4th graders: reading, writing, math, social studies, science, spelling and grammar. I believe the skills learned in each subject overflow spread into the others. Learning and growing is like the fluid fresh mountain water- occurring all day everyday with no concise beginning or end.
My class is a welcoming environment where kids feel safe and challenged. Learning happens in many different ways throughout each day. My door is always open for any child or parent as a place to learn, reflect, rest, and grow.
