A Little Bit About Me:  This is my 25th year of teaching!!  I have taught fourth grade for eighteen years, first grade for one year, and third grade for five years.  I am SUPER EXCITED that I returned to FOURTH GRADE two years ago.  I am very passionate about teaching and love my 4th graders!  I am looking forward to an amazing 2022-23 school year.  I am READY!  Are YOU?  Together we will learn to love LEARNING and take on any challenges we may face!  We are in this together!!! 

     My Family:  I have been married for twenty-four years, and we have two children: Madison (23)  and Tommy (20) along with two dogs: Beazly and Blitzen.  We love to vacation in Sea Isle City.  We also love to go tent camping where we can hike and  white water raft.  Going to Disney is also a family favorite...all you need is "faith, trust, and Pixie Dust".  Now that summer is coming to an end, my children will be off to college.  Madison is a first year Ph.D. student studying electrical engineering at Princeton University, and Tommy is a sophomore at TCNJ studying to be a history teacher.

     My Classroom:  With all the changes in our world, I have learned many new ways to stay connected and cannot wait to combine the "old way" of teaching with all of the "new ways".  Some of my favorite subjects to teach are math and science!  We will learn two and three-digit multiplication, long division, fractions, and geometry.  In science, we will learn about animals and all different types of storms.  I also love to teach WRITING and will include writing in all subjects.  We will incorporate 21st Century Learning in the classroom in all subject areas.  Technology is the tool that connects our classroom to the rest of the world.  Technology will allow us to explore beyond the books and help us develop a better understanding of each topic we explore.  It will help us learn about the great big world that is out there beyond Voorhees! 

    I am so glad you stopped by, and I am ready for an amazing new journey...cannot wait for you to join ME!!!
