Welcome to our classroom-Grades K-4!
As a teacher my mission is to provide a safe and positive learning environment that enhances students’ self-esteem and enthusiasm for learning.  Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that vary by ability and learning styles.  My goal as an educator is to give each student the tools needed to construct their own knowledge and to become successful life-long learners. I believe in differentiating instruction to meet the various needs of all learners.  I believe in setting clear goals and expectations for not only my students, but for myself as a teacher.  I believe in strong communication between home and school.  Parent involvement is vital to student success.  I believe in the whole child approach to teaching and learning.  I feel it is essential to build relationships that ensure each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
 
In the classroom, I am assisted by Mrs. Callan, Mrs. Hastings, Mr. DeSena, and Mrs. Harrington.  I am pleased to work with a great staff who are extremely dedicated to helping our students be successful in their learning environment!
