K-4 Highly Capable
Please fill out the HC Parent Survey if your student has been identified for this program.
I'm so excited to be able to work with the students, parents, and teachers at Wilkes! This year, I'll be collaborating with Jill Queen in creating Highly Capable activities. We've been developing projects that will have the students acquiring a deeper knowledge in subject areas through active exploration and problem solving. This will be my sixteenth year of Professional Teaching in Grades K-5. I graduated from Indiana University with a Major in Elementary Education and a Minor in Special Education. After teaching for several years, I received my Masters in Literacy from the University of Colorado. I've taught Second Grade, Third Grade, Fifth Grade, Literacy, and Special Education.
My husband had a job transfer and we moved from Colorado a couple of years ago. I live on Bainbridge Island with my husband, son, cat, and dog. My son is a Junior at Bainbridge High School and stays busy playing water polo. As a family, we enjoy skiing, swimming, SCUBA diving, paddleboarding, and just being together. I look forward to getting to know this wonderful group of students and families!
