Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Third Grade!
I am so thrilled to be a part of the Star Elementary Family. Teaching is not just a job for me, it is part of my life and always has been. It is my mission to teach everyday with great passion, enthusiasm, energy, and love. It is going to be a year full of learning, friendship, and tons of fun!
I was born in and raised in Illinois and I am the youngest of three. I have an older sister who lives in Nevada and an older brother who lives in New Mexico. When I graduated from high school, I moved to Las Vegas, NV to start my college experience at UNLV. I graduated from "Home of the Running Rebels" in 1992. I majored in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Education. I also received my Master's Degree a few years later from Lesley College in Curriculum and Instruction: Creative Arts and Learning. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, and now 3rd grade throughout my 17 years of teaching.
It is important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. Please feel free to email me if you need to discuss anything concerning your child. We can also set up an appointment to discuss concerns as well. Be aware that I may not be able to respond to you immediately, but I will try my best to reach out to you before and after school or during my planning time when I can. I look forward to being your child's teacher and look forward to a fabulous year of learning what's new in third grade!
