Favorite Thing About Teaching

I enjoy helping children make the connection between the ‘real world’ and their studies.  I also enjoy watching children develop their own sense of self, their confidence, and their willingness to work with their peers through cooperative learning. 

Hobbies/Free-time Activities

In my free time I love to spend time with my husband, Matt, daughter, Avery and son Patrick.  I also love cooking and hope someday to go to Italy to learn to be a gourmet Italian cook! 

Favorite Children’s Book
