Welcome to second grade! I am very excited to be teaching second grade at Marion Elementary, this, my 16th year of teaching. Previously, I have taught special education classes, a gifted and talented class, kindergarten, and second grade. I have a Master’s Degree in Reading and am a certified reading specialist. I am married and have twin 17 year olds, Grace and Tyler. Ruby and Opal are the names of my two Boston Terriers. I love to read, cook, garden, and paint.
This year our classroom theme is a safari learning adventure. We will be tracking down strategies that will help us snare and expand our reading, writing, and math skills. I am looking forward to a fun year of learning in a classroom where every child’s uniqueness is valued and respected.
