Teaching Experience:
I have been with DMPS for 17 years. (15 years at Stowe)
My first year I taught a 1st/2nd grade combination class. Then I taught 1st grade for 1 year. 2nd grade for 1 year and the other 13 years teaching Kindergarten. This is my first year teaching 3rd grade.


My hope and dreams for students this year is for them to become risk-takers, to try things that are new for them. I want them to become independent learners who want to learn more about themselves and the world around them. I want them to be caring individuals and learn why it’s important that we help each other and the world we live in. I want them to enjoy their school experience and share that enjoyment and learning experience with their families.
