Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Well, here we are...taking one of many of the very first steps toward a successful year filled with excitement and curiosity that is uniquely 6th grade!
I am so very excited to be your child's teacher this year! I'm a 2005 graduate of West Chester University in Pennsylvania and prior to Happy Hollow/WLIS, taught in the Lafayette Catholic School System. After teaching grades 2/3, 4, 5, and 6, 6th grade is where I've planted myself for 10 years. I have been in WLCSC since 2012. I LOVE 6th grade!
I am a curious and adventurous military veteran and spouse and therefore have lived in various places prior to setting roots in West Lafayette. Our three children are West Lafayette graduates and have cheered on both Purdue and Indiana universities.
My academic interests revolve around atypical brains: gifted, ADHD, spectrum, creatives, anxiety & adaptations for class/home/good life for those trying to find where they fit. Nature and the importance of nature on humans, both young and old, is a personal interest, as well.
Science Fiction is my favorite genre, with Netflix, Stranger Things leading the way this summer and a Fahrenheit 451 read.
If you have any concerns or questions throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me. The best way to contact me is through e-mail. I check my e-mails often and will respond within a day. Please feel free to request a meeting if you need to discuss your child. My door is open.
I look forward to the adventure our classroom family is about to embark on. We will work hard. We will play hard. Growth will be the reward. In all things, I truly believe...Together We Can.
