I am a first grade teacher, encourager, motivator and believer!
Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I remember playing "school" with my brothers when I was younger and dreaming about what it would be like to be a "real" teacher and have my very own classroom. My teaching dream came true in 2003 when I was hired to teach first grade in Adams 12. Every year I learn and experience new things that keep me working to make a difference in the life of every child.
I hold myself and students to high expectations. My goal for every student is for them to be a risk taker and be okay with making mistakes. Learning is about thinking, experimenting, and being engaged! I want every student to walk into my classroom knowing that they are valued, cared about, and that what they have to say matters!
