ADVENTURE IS BREWING IN

FIFTH GRADE

 I have been teaching for 15 years, and am still as passionate about teaching as I was that first year. I believe a successful classroom is composed of a blend of enthusiasm, teamwork, perseverance, kindness, trust, faith, and good, old-fashioned fun, to name just a few. My hope is to touch the heart and ignite the mind of each of my students.
