I am so excited to be teaching fourth grade again this year at Pioneer.  This will be my sixteenth year of teaching and my eleventh year at Pioneer. 

As a teacher, I want my students to feel that oue classroom is a haven where they can try, fail and achieve greatness.  I want them to feel safe when taking risks and learning new concepts.  I practice instruction that is hands-on, cooperative and language enriched.  I also believe that a classroom with a consistent routine and set learning targets helps to establish a learning environment that makes it wasy for students to reacj goals and celebrate successes.

On a personal note, I have a four year old daughter named Becca who makes me smile every day.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling to Nashville to see my neice and nephew.  I also enjoy reading, seeing movies, and spending time with friends. 

If possible, please send in the following extra suppplies with your child as we are always running out of them:


                                                                       glue sticks

                                                                      paper towels


I look forward to getting to know everyone.  I think that this is going to be a very good year!
