Degrees and Certifications:
I am thrilled to introduce myself to you as your new fourth grade teacher!
I grew up in western Nebraska and am a product of a one-room school house (that’s right, think Little House on the Prairie). I got my teaching degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and my Masters of Education at the University of North Texas. During my career, I have taught school in Colorado, Wyoming, Texas and Pennsylvania. My family moved to central Pennsylvania from Texas fourteen years ago.
I have taught elementary school for 23 years. Most of my teaching time has been with 4th and 5th graders, though I’ve also taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 6th grades. I love the independence of fourth graders and how they really take control of their learning! I look forward to reading some great stories, sharing my love of writing, and tackling division and fractions with you this year.
Please don't feel like you need to wait until conferences to be able to contact your teacher, especially with our trimester schedule. You may email me questions, concerns, (even praise!) anytime. Besides being a teacher, I'm also a mom - and I know how much trust you are putting in me, allowing me to teach and care for your child every day!
So thank you for letting me spend my days with your special little someone. We have a lot to learn this year. Let's get started!
