Welcome to 4th grade! This is my first year at MAUE and I'm so excited to be a Jaguar! 4th grade is an exciting time where you will see a great deal of growth in your child. My goal this year is to help your child become an independent and responsible learner. The 4th grade year continues to be a huge shift both academically and socially. I have lots of things planned and I can't wait to share them with your child!
I am originally from New York, where I got by Bachelor's Degree from the State University of New York at Oneonta. I have a Master's Degree in Reading curriculum and instruction. I've been teaching since 2006. I am married to a great guy for over 25 years and have had the opportunity to move over a dozen times and lived in 9 different states. My husband was in the Navy, and has since retired from that part of our lives, so I hope to stay in the Madison area for good long time. I spent most of my teaching career in Florida with a couple of years in Louisiana. I have two wonderful children, AJ is 21 and Jenna is 10. AJ is a successful welder and artist living in New Orleans. Jenna will be attending Germantown Middle School this fall as a 6th grader. We also have a sweet goldendoodle named Ben, who is my sidekick. I love walking him. You can see part of his head in this picture. He's always by my side! We moved to Madison this past March and have been enjoying our time here.
