    • I have been teaching for now going into my 16th year!
    • I enjoy dancing, exercising, taking pictures, traveling, reading, eating, and SHOPPING.
    • Most of all, I am lucky to have a wonderful family- husband, two beautiful daughters (ages 5 and 2) and my mother all in one household!

Summer Fun!

    • I traveled to Italy to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday!
    • Took the kids camping for the first time.
    • Summer is a busy time for us celebrating both my daughters birthdays, myself, and our wedding anniversary.
    • Weekend trips to the beach, aquarium, Great America and parks.

Classroom Goals:

    • To create a sense of community filled with respect, communication, creativity, technology, and apply problem solving strategies in order to help foster a growth mindset, prepare for middle school and continually work on doing the best that each student can.
