I am excited to begin a new year at Stevenson Primary with you and your child(ren). I began my teaching career here years ago - when third grade was still a part of this campus. Since then, life has been full and eventful. I stayed home with my own children until the third (and last) one was ready for school, and then she and I came back to school together. Through the years, I have taught third grade, prekindergarten, and special needs children prior to becoming a librarian. Through my experiences, I have come to know that reading is critical to lifelong success. Accessing information in digital formats, being able to safely navigate the internet, and deciphering valid sources of information are also necessary in this day and age. However, beyond that, I believe that there is magic in books and that time spent reading with a child is precious. Books allow us to share experiences and participate in adventures far beyond our wildest dreams and imagination. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the chapters that will grow to be your child's story.
