Fourth Grade in Rm. 9

Welcome to our Room 9 website! I'm thrilled to be your fourth grader's teacher this year. I grew up in the Union School District and attended Guadalupe and Dartmouth. What a joy it is to still be in this wonderful district. This is my 25th year teaching and my 15th year at Lietz teaching 4th grade.

I enjoy traveling to different parts of the world on missions trips and like to incorporate cultural insights into our curriculum where they fit. This summer I taught fifty 5th graders in Ethiopia and on my way home helped a friend with underprivileged youth in the Bronx.
