Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Fifth Grade.
This is my 27th year in education, and nothing is ever the same. Learning changes every year and so do I. Starting in January our 5th grade team departmentalized. Therefore I am now teaching Reading to all 105 students. This model is sure to prepare your child for Middle School and what will be expected. Please ensure that your child do their homework every night. This homework will consist of a short assignment to reinforce that days lesson, read 20 minutes every night and if they did not complete a classroom assignment in class.
I am married and enjoy hiking, fishing and camping with my husband. I have two wonderful children, a son and a daughter. They have given me the joys of my life, my grandchildren: Tatum is 6, JAC is 3, Avery is 1, and a sweet new granddaughter Lillie Ann. Every moment spent with them is pure joy. My grandchildren continue to keep me young, teach me valuable lessons and provide me with humorous stories to share with my students.
Advice to parents: provide time for your child to debrief on their day, require them to read, and cherish every moment.
