A little background information about myself....

I began teaching when I was three years old. My first student was my brother and then four years later my class size doubled when my sister was born. I finally turned this position into full time employment after attending WSU and earning a degree in education. Since that time I have raised two children and taught countless students ranging in ages from 4 to 11 years old.  I have a master’s degree in Creative Arts from Lesley University and work hard to include the arts in my daily lessons. When I'm not thinking about fourth graders and planning lessons I can be found playing with my grandchildren, working in my garden, biking, hiking or having fun with my friends and family.

  I believe good communication between home and school is vital to the educational and emotional well being of your child. If you have any concerns or questions, please call me or drop me a note. I welcome your input. You can speak with me directly between 8:00 and 8:35 in the morning or between 3:00 and 4:00 in the afternoon. If you call at another time of the day, please leave a message (and phone number) and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If it is inconvenient for me to call you at work with concerns, please let me know and I will communicate with you via notes, e-mail or mail

Our school phone number is 253-373-7434, 
classroom number is 253-373-3975
