I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and a Master of Science degree in Education with a Specialization in Reading. This is my 22nd year of teaching at our wonderful Lee Road School. I consider myself very fortunate to be part of the Lee Road family and I am grateful for each day spent in this wonderful school.
The environment in my classroom is loving and supportive, as well as structured. I expect the students to always devote their best effort to their work. I also believe that the children should be learning to take responsibility for their actions. One of my main goals is to try to help foster an enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
Aside from academic growth, I also focus on nurturing the children's social and emotional development. We work towards being kind, caring, collaborative, respectful, and responsible. I promote an attitude of respecting and celebrating the differences and similarities in all people.
Lastly, I recognize how essential a positive partnership between parents and teacher is to each student's success.
