Welcome to Second Grade! I feel so blessed getting to say this, two years in a row at this amazing school! In the past I have taught preschool, Kindergarten, and Second grade, but have developed a sweet spot for second grade. I have been happily married for 27 years with 3 amazing children ages 24, 22, and 19. We also have two Australian Shepherds who are family as well... just less expensive! I love the wonder of childhood. It is a true honor to be able to witness, cultivate, and harvest the enthusiasm and wonder children bring in the door every single day into an educational adventure that will be lifelong. I truly believe all children can learn and all children want to learn. My number one goal is to help each of my students understand this. I love to travel to visit our three kids who live in different states and sometimes countries! I also like to exercise, cook, read, garden, and binge watch Netflix.
