Welcome to 5th Grade!

I have been teaching in the Merton School District since 2005. During my career at Merton, I have taught in 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade. I am very excited to be in 5th grade at the Intermediate School where I will teach Language Arts and Social Studies.  I look forward to the many learning experiences your child and I will share together this year!    


Teaching Philosophy

I believe in fostering an independent environment for students in my classroom and nurturing a strong sense of community.  I believe in developing a feeling of family within our classroom from the very start and supporting one another throughout the year together. I truly believe kids should laugh every day and enjoy school, so I love to have fun in the classroom!

I love being an educator and think that the support Merton teachers receive from parents is unmatched by any other district.  I feel fortunate to work in Merton and be a part of this incredible community.
