I have been a part of the Ishikawa family either as a parent or as a staff member for 26 years.  My husband and I love to travel whenever we have the opportunity to do so.  We just returned from two cruises, one through Europe, and the second one where we had the opportunity to visit 7 South American countries which added to our bucket list of 48 countries.

This year I will be teaching reading, writing (my passion), and social studies.  In social studies we will be studying Egypt, Greece, and the Roman Civilizations.  I have lived in Italy and my husband and I have visited Egypt and Greece which gives me a little more first hand knowledge to impart to my students, rather than what is just in the book.

We have a great 6th grade team and I am looking forward to another great year at Ishikawa!

No matter what I teach to children I enjoy capturing their high level of thinking and seeing the pure enjoyment of life that they display in class.
