AO Elementary AIG

A little information about me...

This is my 25th year of teaching, and all but one of them have been at AO! This is my fourth year as the AIG Specialist at AO, and I love working with my students year after year and watching them grow. I have been married to my husband, Joe, for 33 years. We have 3 daughters, who are all grown and married, and one grandchild. When we are not visiting them, we like to go camping at the beach and in the mountains. We like to take our bikes and kayaks with us when there are places to explore. I love Broadway musicals, mystery/crime novels, watching marching bands, and I am a confessed Food Network Junkie.


Keep an eye on our Twitter feed (linked below). I use it to post pictures and videos from class activities. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about your child's AIG placement or about the program in general.

4th Graders just finished reading the Junior Great Books Story "Cedric". Check out their video responses about their hopes and dreams!
