Hello Warriors and Parents! Thank you for visiting my website! I am so excited to have my students for the 2020-21 school year!
My overall goal this year is to have our students develop ongoing reading habits, learn new strategies for understanding, and develop our writing to grow intellectually as communicators. I do my best to stay current in education, trends, and events, while maintaining the integrity of our history.
Further below, you can learn a bit about me and what I enjoy doing outside of the classroom. I am so excited to be learning with students and collaborating with teachers to ensure students have a learning experience that will develop ongoing habits that last into adulthood.
Warriors say, "Hoka Hey!"
