Hello RMRE families. I would like to introduce myself as your child’s 1st grade teacher for the 17/18 school year. Next year will be my 12th year as an educator; I’ve taught in Arizona, and in Illinois. In that time, I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades, as well as substituted in all grades. First grade is my favorite grade to teach though! I love the reading curriculum—teaching phonics and helping first graders become great readers is my favorite part!
When I am not at The Ranch with our awesome students, I am at home with my wonderful family. I have been married for 16 years and have 5 daughters and one son. We have three kitties and a cute puppy who keep us busy! In my free time, I enjoy hiking, going to the movies, reading and going in the pool.
I will be spending the summer planning lots of exciting things for our class for the upcoming school year! I can’t wait to see you in August!
