The 2016-2017 School Year is Upon Us!


This year is one I get to teach Reading as well as Writing and Math!  I am looking forward to the year, and hoping to have exciting learning in store for your children!

It’s a brand new year, with unlimited possibilities.  My goal is to help any struggling students get the help they need to feel confident in their classrooms.  I hope to delve into what makes your child tick, and use that to help them really enjoy this year.

So…here we go!
