Please be sure to have your kindergartener to school, on time, every day. Attendance is key to ensuring your kindergartener is actively learning.

Degrees and Certifications:
Elementary Education (K-6) ELL endorsed Library Media endorsed Instructional Technology (k-12)
I was born in Delaware and grew up in Florida. I attended the University of North Florida (Jacksonville, FL) and earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6) as well as my Master's degree in Instructional Technology. I also earned my ELL endorsement. I moved to Washington in 2008 and taught at a private school in Seattle, WA. From 2008- 2017, I have taught: pre-school, 2nd grade, 1st and 5th literacy, and was a teacher-librarian. I enjoy teaching, but really enjoy the fact that education is ever changing. There is really no better feeling than seeing a student of mine having a "light bulb" moment, where they are mastering something that was taught. I believe in building a positive mindset in my classroom and work hard to make sure my students know I believe in them, and they will achieve what they set their minds on!
I enjoy all forms of coffee, my 7 year old black lab (Xena), and spending lots of time with my friends and family! :)
