About Me
Why do you love being a teacher?: 
Being a part of children's exploration of their world is an amazing feeling. Their innocence and trust is so genuine, I feel honored to be entrusted to help guide them. They are completely unique, and I cherish watching their growth and realization of their own power in life. Their hugs and honesty are priceless. Teaching is my passion in life.
What do you like to do outside of school?: 

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.
 

What is a favorite quote of yours?: 

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
 

My Classroom
Courses Taught: 

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.

About My Classroom: 

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.
