After teaching kindergarten for 10 years, I decided to challenge myself and change grade levels. I am very excited to be starting my 6th year teaching 4th grade. As my students say, '4th grade rocks'! My husband and I were married in 2001. We have 1 SPOILED puggle named Fiona. As of last count, we have 5 cats. I love to spend time traveling, planting flowers, and reading. I love a good mystery. I look forward to an exciting year of getting to know my 'family' of students as we grow and learn together.
