About Me and Contact

Welcome to the life of a 4th grade teacher!  I currently teach Reading/Language Arts and Virginia Studies in a collaborative (inclusion) classroom.  I have been teaching for 7 years now and this is my fourth year in 4th grade. I think the 4th graders are such a fun age group!

I have a Bachelor's in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a concentration in math and a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction.  I'm basically hooked on all things school - school supplies, classroom decor, classroom management, and professional development opportunities.  I look at every day as an opportunity to learn something new.  Confession: I stalk Wal Mart beginning July 5th just waiting for all the shiny new school supplies to be put out.

I live on a farm with my husband and our many four-legged children.  In my free time I enjoy sewing, reading, running, crafting, and spending time outside with my husband and our horses.  I am a child of God and love to spend time at church.  My husband and I teach Sunday School, Children's Church, and coordinate VBS.
