About The Teacher


This will be my fourth year teaching at Fortine School. My family and I moved here from western New York where I previously taught for 10 years. We love this community and the school district. This area has many outdoor opportunities that my family loves to take advantage of. We enjoy camping, hiking, kayaking, fishing, boating, snowmobiling, skiing and viewing wildlife.

My commitment to the students: information provider and facilitator, offer a safe nurturing environment, be a positive role model, clearly articulate expectations and goals, give encouragement and praise, offer compassion and guidance, inspire and promote creativity and uniqueness, listen, be fair, offer respect and demand respect, maintain sense of humor, acceptance for all, and the list goes on.

This is going to be a great year! I believe in every child and know everyone can succeed in my classroom. Teaching is my passion and I am dedicated to your child's learning! Let’s have a fantastic and fun school year!
