Welcome to 4th Grade!
I am so excited to work with you and your child this year! This is my thirteenth year at Union Academy and 29th year teaching. (I began teaching when I was 10. J). I have a range of experience from kindergarten through fourth grade and also in the EC department. I can't wait to begin this new adventure in fourth grade! Our theme for the year will be to travel to new heights while taking joy in the journey.
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 this past year. While at Union Academy, she was afforded great educational opportunities along with character development and experience volunteering in the community. 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.
