Hi! Welcome to our class website!

I would like to start out by saying how excited I am to be your teacher this year! I cannot wait to meet each and everyone of you, and I know that we will have a great school year! 

This will be my twentieth  year teaching (at Westside and the former Parker Mathis), and I could not be happier.

I am so excited to once again be teaching fourth graders.

My husband and I have been married for  eight  years, and we have four wonderful children and one granddaughter and one grandson. 

Our oldest daughter Nikki is married to Rhett Barber and they have a daughter Adalynn(6) and a  son Beau(2).  Nikki is a registered nurse.  Our oldest son Chris graduated from VSU with a Chemistry Degree he is currently working for CJB Industries.  Our other son Jake graduated from VSU with a  Business Degree and currently works at Turner's Furniture.  Our youngest daughter, Katie is  a Physical Therapists and lives in Huntsville, AL.

When I am not teaching I love spending lots of time with my family. My hobbies are reading and cooking. My husband and I love going camping and going to the beach.

Fourth grade is a very special and important year.  You are beginning a new journey which requires more responsibility and higher expectations in the classroom.  I am thrilled to get to guide you and support you along the way during this exciting time in your life.  I have many fun and interesting activities planned for the school year, so get your thinking caps on and be ready to learn when you walk in the door on Thursday, August 6th!  As the summer comes to an end, please remember to keep reading, reading, reading and practice those math facts!  Enjoy the rest of your summer!  I can't wait to meet you at the Open House on Tuesday, August 2nd..  This will be an opportunity to become familiar with our classroom, find your desk, put your school supplies away, and catch up with your friends.  I am looking forward to a happy and successful school year!
