Welcome to 4th grade!

I am so excited that you are going to be in my class! I look forward to learning about you and your family during our 4th grade year. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and your parents.

I attended Lake Park Elementary when I was a little girl. My daddy also attended Lake Park when he was a child, and both of my sons have attended. We all think it is a great school, and I hope you do too!

Since being a student at Lake Park, I have worked hard to become a teacher. I have bachelors and masters degrees in Middle Childhood Education, an education specialist degree in Curriculum Instruction Management Administration, completed National Board certification and am gifted endorsed. Although I've been in school for a LONG time, I always learn new things from my students. I am looking forward to learning from you and with you this year!

As I mentioned earlier, I look forward to learning about your family. Here is a little information about mine. My husband and I have two sons, Jared and Jacob - and now a brand new daughter-in-law, Kristin! Jacob is in his first year of college and Jared is in physical therapy school. We stay busy with church, school, band and the beach! During the fall, we attend all of the Viking games - the guys are there for the football - I'm there to see the Bridgemen!

Please tell your parents to e-mail me anytime!
