Hello, welcome to First Grade! This is going to be a year full of learning, fun, and growing. Let's work together to make this a successful year.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Purdue University in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. All of my years of experience are in primary grades Kindergarten-Second Grade. I am trained as a Reading Specialist. I continue to attend Professional Development classes to further my expertise and effectiveness as an educator.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe students are all unique and learn in different ways. I also believe we can help children learn to look past their limitations, and reach for the stars. In our room we learn a lot about the Growth Mindset, and how powerful our mistakes can be in the learning process. We persevere and learn that hard work and effort is what it takes to become a master of first grade skills. We are all leaders and be leaders of ourselves and others by being proactive in our learning and relationships with others.
