Hi! Welcome to Room 207! I am excited to have your child in my classroom. There are many exciting plans for the year.

I enjoy teaching so much that I went back to school a second time, in 2000, to obtain a teaching certificate. My first degree is in nursing (RN).

My goal, for the classroom, is to provide a comfortable, safe environment that accomodates every student's learning needs.  I think that engaging children in different types of learning situations (hands-on, small groups, partners, independent, and whole group) are beneficial ways for ALL children to learn. These styles of learning are incorporated into daily lesson plans. You will often see the students, in Room 207, out of their seats and working in different areas of the classroom and involved in various activities.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns about your child's progress. You may also send a note to school or use your child's planner to communicate your concern.

Second graders LOVE visitors! The classroom is ALWAYS open, and you are WELCOME to visit anytime. P.S. Please bring a book with you and read it to us! :-)
