I am so excited to be joining the 3rd grade team this year! I have taught first, second, third and fifth grade at this amazing school since 1990. I have also had the lucky opportunity to be a reading interventionist here at Mountain View. I'm looking forward to this school year. We will have fun learning together this year.
I have a wonderful family that is very supportive and active. I am a native of Colorado, married to another Native Coloradan. We have a wonderful 17 year old daughter who is going to be a senior in high school, a kind, loving 20 year old son, and 2 adult chilren and 6 wonderful grandchildren. I have an adorable puppy, named Oso and two sweet cats-Pax and Phoebe. If I am not here teaching,I am watching my daughter dance. To keep healthy and active I like to do Jazzercise Iand take my dog for walks. I look forward to spending some amazing learning time with your children. I am confident that we can have a wonderful year of learning, whatever that ends up looking like. I pride myself in my ability to be flexible and love a challenge.
I believe that children learn by doing, and improve their reading and writing by actively doing so. I want the children to feel valued and loved in our classroom and to be respectful to each other. I love this quote: "It's ok if you don't know everything right now. But being kind, using your manners, having fun, and doing that right thing is a good start." Bryan Skavnak
This year in 3rd grade we will learn many things!
