Dear Families,

The start of school is just days away! I hope you have had a fantastic summer. As you get ready for the start of the year you probably have a few questions. I will try my best to answer a few of them here.

About Me

I have been teaching for 14 years, 13 of them at Carson. I absolutely love this school! I've mainly taught third and fourth grades. I am also the head coach for our afterschool Girls on the Run Program. When not teaching I enjoy running, sewing, and traveling. My mother lives in Cochabamba Bolivia, (suffice to say your child will learn a lot about Bolivia this year). The best way to concat me is via email . I generally check my email before school and after school.

On the first day of school I will be sending home the class code for remind. This is a site where I can send out quick messages about what is happening in our class for example, updates on homework fundraising reminders. You can also contact me via email. There are free android and iphone app for this. Remind can also be accessed on a desktop or laptop.

Bell Schedule

The schedule has changed a little bit this year. Please follow this link.
