"It matters that you are here.  Stay awhile.  
Speak and listen.  Come back again tomorrow."
(Louisa Cruz-Acosta, second grade teacher)


I want ALL my students to feel safe and welcome in our classroom.  I hope that they feel they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes.  We are a community of learners - even ME!  I look forward to getting to know my students and parents, building relationships, and LEARNING A LOT this year!
