My favorite part of being a teacher is that I get to know students and their families! Coming together to encourage, teach and celebrate students is such a privilege.
I began teaching in 1993 and have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Fourth Grade and Fifth Grade, both in urban and rural schools. I am married to a teacher and we have two children. Teachers have contributed so much to my kids' lives by caring for them, by providing excellent teaching and high expectations, and by inspiring and supporting them. My hope and greatest goal is to do the same for the students at Jenny Lind!
I am also interested in the science of teaching reading and have received additional trainings in evidence-based phonics instruction.
I am grateful to be a part of the Jenny Lind community!
