I have been married for 21 years to my husband, Bryan.  We have a thirteen year old daughter who just started 7th grade at Dunbar Magnet School and a 7 year old son in 2nd grade at Old Shell.  I taught first grade for eleven years before moving to second grade.  This my 8th year in second grade.  I enjoy this age group because they have such a sweet spirit and a zest for learning.  In my spare time I like to read and spend time with my family. Teaching is one of the greatest joys in my life.  I consider it an honor to touch the lives of so many children.

I am excited to be teaching your child and look forward to working with you to make this a fun and and successful year.   If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.
