I am so excited to be returning to 5th grade for my 22nd year of teaching! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with your children.

When I am not at school, I love to spend time with my family. My husband Neal and I are the very proud parents of two girls— Gwyneth and Josephine. I enjoy curling up with a great book or cheering on my daughters at cheerleading competitions.
