Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, and welcome to Heritage Middle School! As a parent myself, I recognize that you may want to know a little bit about your child's teacher so I have included some background information that may help us get acquainted.
This year, I will be teaching 8th grade English and ELD support. This will be my 21st year of teaching - my, how time flies when you are doing what you love!
I earned my Masters in Education from the University of California in Santa Barbara in 2000 and have called middle school my home ever since. Middle school represents a dynamic age group full of inquiring minds and unending energy. My students help me stay young at heart despite my increasingly greying hair.
As luck would have it, I will have an 8th grader at home as well. My son is entering his 8th grade year and my daughter, her 7th grade year. When not in the classroom, (or chauffeuring my son to soccer or daughter to dance), I do enjoy being out in nature. I love taking my Goldendoodle on long walks after school. My favorite activities this past summer were rafting down the Salmon River with my family and deep sea fishing in the Atlantic.
I am really looking forward to seeing all those bright, smiling faces back in my classroom and meeting you all in person as well. Please use the contact information should you have any questions or concerns.
