This year we will create some memories together as we meet all the challenges of 6yj grade. Are you ready? It is pretty intense and I promise you - you will do a lot of growing this year. As the year flies by you will be so proud of your successes and accomplishments as you experience new levels of determination, perseverance and effort being an intermediate student and preparing yourself for junior high.

My Education and Professional Background

I worked in the business world in different capacities as a bank teller, in retail and now ongoing vendor (advocate for small business). Twenty-three years in the education spectrum with a Bachelor's Degrees from the University of Toledo (Ohio) and Masters Degree from NAU (Arizona). In the education field I have spent the first five years in second grade, seventeen consecutive years in fourth grade and will finish my education career in 6th grade for the next seven year.

My Educational Philosophy

We all have challenges and I know from my personal experience, any meaningful achievement has come on the heels of hard work, perseverance, and overcoming obstacles that some even doubted I could overcome. I agree with Frank A. Clark who said If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere. Life teaches lessons; mistakes teaches life; live to be a life long learner and the world is yours to create.
