This is my 16th year in education and 6th year at West Middle. Before becoming a Wildcat and teaching 6th grade ELA, I taught 5th grade for ten years. Even as a 6th grader myself, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. Throughout my time as a student, many teachers supported, challenged, and inspired me. My goal is to do the same for my students.
I have an 8-year-old daughter who is entering 4th grade. She is my whole world. I recently bought a house, got engaged, and will be married this year. As you can see, this is a time of new beginnings for myself and my family, and we are very much looking forward to it.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading. My family also enjoys the outdoors, and we go hiking and camping frequently. I am a firm believer in building relationships through communication and mutual respect. I hope to be in contact with all of my students’ families throughout the year and to give students the opportunity to share with me what matters most to them.
I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year. It is my job to work with families as we support the success of our children.
