Dear 6th Grader and Family,

    Congratulations...you made it!  Welcome to 6th grade and your last year at Fulton Elementary.  Get ready to make your mark!  I hope you are as excited as I am to get this new school year started.  I am thrilled to be your teacher, and look forward to a fun and productive year together.  Be ready to bring your “A” game.  As a 6th grade student at Fulton you will have many expectations and responsibilities. 

    I want to share a few things about myself.  I am originally from Iowa, but have been in Arizona for 32 years.  I have been married to Steve, my high school sweetheart, for 28 years and together we have an amazing family(Megan and her husband Luc, Mallory, Mason and his wife Joselyn,Morgan, and our very first grandchild, Beckham.)

    I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University, Go Sun Devils!  I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grade and truly love coming to work every day.   Teaching has forever been my heart, and I am passionate for the education of our youth.  I value your input, and I thank you in advance for your support during this exciting school year.

    In my classroom, I work hard to promote a tight-knit community.  I believe in a safe environment.  I work hard all year long building a classroom that encourages risk-taking thinking, respect, trust, and a sense of ownership among students.  I truly understand the enormity of my job and I relish in the responsibility and the rewards.  I also believe that parents, teacher, and students must work as a team to achieve our highest potential.

    This year Fulton’s Meet the Teacher is on Thursday, July 18th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, room C-2.   I am hoping you can make it as I would love to see you before the start of the school year!  I have included a Suggested Supply List.  You are welcome to bring in your supplies at Meet the Teacher and select your desk. 

    Enjoy the last of your summer vacation!
