Welcome to the third grade!. This is my 16th year with the Western School District. I have been at the first grade level, with the exception of one year at the kindergarten level, for the majority of time here at Western. This will be my first year in third grade. This is an exciting change for me as we move from learning to read to learning all we can from our reading.
I am married with a very supportive husband, two children, their spouses and two wonderful grandsons. Both of my children are graduates of the Western School District. My oldest grandson is attending third grade this year at his home district. This makes teaching at this level even more exciting for me. My youngest grandson will be in preschool this year.
I have both my Bachelors and Masters Degrees through Spring Arbor University. My personal goal is to help each student feel valued. I love teaching! There is nothing like seeing the eyes of a child light up when they have learned something new or finally figured out something they have been struggling with! I will do whatever I possibly can to help your child through the humps and bumps of third grade. I look forward to having your child in my classroom.
