Welcome to 5th Grade!
I grew up in Washington State, but spent many summer days in Montana. (Bestill my heart!) I taught in Spokane, WA before marrying a Marine and moving all over the country. 21 years later, we have lived in seven different states. We have 2 amazing daughters. My oldest is a Sophomore at NC State. My youngest is a Junior at Richlands High School. We are enjoying our time in North Carolina!
I strive to create a classroom environment where my students feel comfortable to grow, participate, and succeed. I desire for my students to know their success may look different than their peers' success because everyone has their own strengths. I want my students to dig deeper into learning and go beyond the surface questions. I aim to meet my students at their ability levels and learning styles to help them reach individual goals. Most of all, I want my students to know learning is not a race with a finish line, but a never ending journey with great rewards.
