Welcome Back to School!

I am so excited to see all my students again this year, and meet some new ones!  We will have a fun filled year as we grow in our spelling, writing and math.

I want to begin the year just telling you how much you as a person matter–whether you’re the parent or the student!  You have something to offer that is greatly needed–to those around you that you have influence with.  I hope to get to know you and learn more about you as the year progresses.  I will be adding a video soon, explaining what I will be doing in my classroom this year.  But to start with, I want you to know we look forward to your HEART being impacted.  Our guidelines for success are:

  • H – Have the Courage to Try
  • E – Expect Growth
  • A – Accept Responsibility
  • R – Respect Myself and Others
  • T – Think Before ActingScreen Shot 2015-08-19 at 2.09.32 PM

Amazing Work



As the semester comes to a close, all I can do is brag on these kids for their hard work.  Some worked the whole semester to make their first book, others cranked out a second book with less help from me.  I am so proud of you kids!  May our next semester be even more productive!!
