About Me:
     This is my fifth year at Stargate and I am excited about the new year!  Before having the opportunity to relocate to Colorado, I taught third and fourth grade for thirteen years at a gifted and talented school in New Jersey.   I have also worked with ESL and middle school students teaching advanced reading and writing courses.  I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Kentucky, and thus love college basketball.  After obtaining my undergraduate degree, I went on to earn a Master’s in Education from Nova Southeastern University. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 1-year-old daughter, 7-year-old son, and hound named Lucy.  I am looking forward to a great year!


What I Love about Teaching:
     Creating lessons that inspire students to become life-long learners is my passion!  I love seeing students’ eyes light up when they discover new knowledge.  I find it rewarding when I hear my students discuss how the lessons I taught them in class will benefit them today and in the future.

Blogging:

Grading:
   I will keep grades on Infinite Campus which you can access from the menu.  Monday Folders will be used to send home work and tests.  All other information can be found in my blogs.
