• Welcome to fifth grade!  This is an exciting year as it is the last step in your child's elementary career.   My goal is to help your children become responsible students and to instill in them a lifelong love of learning. I hold high expectations for my students, both in academics and behavior. We will work hard at establishing a classroom atmosphere of respect and cooperation. I am deeply committed as your child's teacher and look forward to building their confidence as a learner while inspiring them in a productive and engaging classroom environment. 

    I have been teaching for 13 years and hold both a Bachelor's and Master's Degree.  I have been married for 8 years to my husband, Justin, and we have two wonderful children, Paisley and Paxton.  We also have two fur babies, our dogs Cammie and JJ.  In my free time, I love spending time with my family and being active in my church.    I also love all things Disney and enjoy visiting Florida as often as I can.

    As parents and guardians, you play a crucial role in your child’s education. In order to prepare them to be at their best for learning, please ensure that:

    ● your child receives adequate rest (8-10 hours of sleep each night);

    ● your child enjoys a nutritious breakfast

    ● you speak with your child about their school day and how they might be feeling;

    ● you encourage your child to take ownership of their education and school day by emptying their backpacks nightly, sharing any school news, and completing homework in order to be prepared for the next school day. 

    I'm looking forward to a great year of learning together.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
