Welcome to our classroom! I am so happy we will share the year together! Our classroom theme is "Woodland Wonders" You will notice woodland-themed things in all of our correspondence and around our room! Having a theme helps to make our room a special place to be. I am excited about beginning my 2nd year at Graham A. Barden Elementary. My family and I relocated from the Annapolis, Maryland area last August. I am an experienced teacher who has taught grades K-3. I love creating a classroom where the children feel safe, happy, use their creativity, and are eager to discover and learn! 

I am married to Jack and we have two children, Nickolas and Katia. Nickolas graduated with a masters in Plant sciences this past year and Katia is a junior at Wingate University near Charlotte studying elementary education.  Our other family members are a Pomsky dog named Keonna and a cat named Blue.  We love to go for walks, to visit the beach, and to travel.

Kindergarten is a wonderful year of so much growth and change for your child. Learning to read, write, and use math thinking will be our focus! Working in groups, problem solving, and learning to use polite manners are incorporated daily too. It will be a wonderful year together!
