I am so excited to be a first grade teacher at Parkside this year! I am looking forward to spending each day with your precious child and can't wait to learn and grow along with all of the students in Room 1118! Please feel free to stop by my room, call me or email me if you have any questions.

I became a teacher because I love seeing the excitement of children as they learn! My goal as a teacher is to get to know each child's strengths and areas for improvement and help scaffold their learning so they feel successful. I believe in my heart that each child is unique and wonderful and I strive to help every child feel that way. Every year my class becomes my family and I want to be a true partner in your child's life. I value open and honest communication as we work together to make first grade a year to remember!
