Hello students and families!  I am so happy to be celebrating my 9th year teaching at Jane Addams!  I co-teach one 6th grade language arts classes with Mr. Sidenstick and also teach one regular ed class on my own.  In addition, I team 2 WIN (What I Need) classes.  My plan period is from 9:50 AM to 10:30 PM, and I encourage you to meet with me during that time or before or after school for any reason concerning your child.  You can also reach out to me  Combined with your child, we are all one great team, who are helping your child thrive in middle school. 

My educational philosophy is that all students can become strong readers and writers with just the right book and passion for writing!  I also believe in the growth mindset where mistakes are encouraged and risks are embraced!  

Finally, I am the sponsor of Builders Club which "builds" leaders out of our young people. We volunteer at various community locations for service to others.  

 We are going to have a phenomenal year!
