      Hello! I can’t believe I get to spend so much time doing what I L-O-V-E doing.  That is, getting the chance to work with kids and watch them soak up learning.  It’s important to me that I make our classroom a happy, busy, interactive and safe place to be. Kindergarteners look at the world with fresh eyes and attitudes. Each day is an adventure.

      Kindergarten is the BEST! It is so great to be surrounded all day by students who are curious about everything. These students are our future and to be a part of their journey and ignite a love of learning and discovering their own abilities is indescribable. Who could not love a day where you are greeted with many sticky finger hugs and huge missing tooth smiles? I love every minute of it.

      I’m so happy to be teaching again at Marcus Whitman Elementary.  I previously taught first grade here for seven years before moving out of state. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to be back here teaching kindergarten.  Working with children is the best job in the world!  This is going to be a great year filled with lots of learning, new experiences, and loads of fun.
