Welcome to 4th Grade!
I am so excited to work with you and your child this year! This is my fifteenth year at Union Academy and 31st year teaching. (I began teaching when I was 10.). I have a range of experience from kindergarten through fourth grade and also in the EC department. This is my third year in fourth grade at Union Academy.
Our theme for the year will be: "Adventure Awaits: Enjoy the Journey!" I know that the start to this journey is not ideal, but if we look closely, we can find the positives along the way. It is my goal this year to help students look for those opportunities to spread joy and find happiness along the way. My teaching philosophy includes creating a warm and inviting environment where students feel safe to take chances and strive to accomplish new goals. I believe in providing a consistent and encouraging classroom where students are challenged to push themselves to reach their fullest potential.
My husband, Kevin, and I have three children. My youngest daughter, Jessie graduated from UA two years ago. While at Union Academy, she was afforded great educational opportunities along with character development. She was also a member of the state championship soccer team. I look forward to partnering with you as we watch your child grow educationally, in character, and community involvement.
