Welcome to my classroom website!
It's hard for me to believe that I have been teaching for 34 years! I have taught grades 1-4 and have loved every one of those grades!
I have been happily married for 33 years, and I have two wonderful sons and 3 grandchildren. I like to scrapbook, read, exercise, and spend time with my family. Together, we enjoy golfing, camping, and boating.
I believe every child is special and unique. I also believe that all children can learn and show significant progress. More learning takes place when children have a great attitude and a willingness to try. Learning is enhanced when it is fun and when the students take ownership of their learning. It is my desire to develop in children a love and enthusiasm for learning. Finally, learning is maximized with parental support and involvement, whether it be in the classroom or with conversations and encouragement at home. I hold high expectations for my students, both in academics and behavior, as I want all my students to reach their potential. This year we will make goals, work hard, and celebrate our successes!
