Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in New England. I moved to Florida when I was 12 and have lived in Charlotte County ever since. I have worked at Kingsway since November 2015. I have loved every minute of it.
I have two wonderful children, Atreyu (in 4th grade) and Justice (in 2nd grade). I also have an amazing husband who has never ceased to put up with my crazy antics in the 13 years we have been together. We also get to love our one crazy adorable dog, Cleopatra, our enormously fat pudding of a cat Moose, and our sneaky black cat Raven. My favorite things are creating art,woodworking, sewing, and reading books! My favorite quote is by George R.R. Martin: “The person who reads lives a thousand lives before he dies. The person who does not lives only one.” Fantasy and science fiction are my favorite genres, but I find can find some small greatness in any book.
I am passionate about what I do. Besides books, art, and woodworking, my calling is to be a teacher. I love each and every one of my students from the moment they step into my classroom. I am silly, sarcastic, and occasionally scatterbrained, but I am a teacher with high expectations. I give 110% as often as I can, and expect the same of my students. My goal this year is to engage and challenge all of my students to help them reach their full potentials, while also keeping everyone as safe as possible. This year will seem much different than years passed, but with lots of love and a little grace, we will all get through it together.
School begins on August 31st. Please review my Open House presentation, as well as the supply list prior to the start of the school year.
Your child will come home the first week with paperwork to sign, and more in-depth information about my classroom policies. Please be on the lookout for those!
Communication is key! Please feel free to email me at any time if you have questions, comments, or concerns regarding your child. I will do my best to answer in a timely manner and to the best of my ability!
