Hello and welcome to second grade! Just a little about me…..I am beginning my 18th year of teaching. This is my second year in 2nd grade. I have taught first and third grades for many years at Frederick Douglass Elementary School.
I am what you would call a “career switcher.” I have worked as a staff accountant, banker in Trust Operations, and a buyer for a major retail chain. After many years in the retail industry, I decided to go back to college and get my Masters of Education. As my family says….”You are a professional student.” What can I say??? I love to learn and my hope is to instill that love of learning to my students!
I have two wonderful grown children, Ryan and Casey. I have an 18 year old cat named Tigger and a 12 year old Bichon Frise named Bella Rose. In my spare time, I love to make jewelry, read, shop, and spend time with family and friends.
I believe that a strong home and school connection is essential to the success of each child. I am looking forward to working in partnership with you to make this a successful year for your child! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
