I am so excited to meet your students and get started on our learning adventure together. There is never a dull moment in fourth grade with all the great books to read, awesome science to explore (like erosion, the human body, and orcas), state history to discover and math to challenge and keep us engaged. It is going to be EPIC as the kids say.
Last year was my first at Wilkes teaching fourth grade and I am thrilled to be teaching here again, at the same grade level and with the same awesome coworkers. The two years before that, I was at Sakai teaching 6th grade LA and Social Studies. The six years prior to that, I was a Special Education Para-Educator working with grades K-8 at Commodore Options. I was also invited to sit on the Social Studies Curriculum Review Committee and the Highly Capable Committee, both giving me the opportunity to connect with educators and administrators throughout the district. Being in all these environments, with master teachers, has allowed me to learn and grow as an educator.
Here is a picture of my family...Troy, Harper, Simon and Tucker!
Harper is starting her "second" sophomore year at Santa Barbara City College and graduated from the BISD in 2016.
Simon is starting 10th grade at Eagle Harbor High School.
Tucker is my awesome 5 year old dog and I hope you get to meet him!
