I am thrilled & privileged to be your child's teacher! Teaching is an absolute passion of mine and I'm excited to work with you and your child this year!
When students enter Room B15, they will find a positive learning environment where all are welcome. Every member of our class family will be supported, encouraged, challenged, and loved. It is my mission to instill a love of learning in my students and a desire to be leaders and life-long learners. I value all of my students as individuals and my goal for each one is to feel proud of his/her accomplishments- big or small! I have high expectations for my students and I believe they can achieve anything!
I look forward to getting to know each one of my student's interests, hopes, & dreams this year, but first, here's a few things about me! I began my educational career as a student teacher here in Hudson at Evamere. I continued to be a part of the Evamere community as a long-term substitute, first-grade teacher, and then for 15 years as a Kindergarten teacher. Four years ago I was welcomed to The Hill & I absolutely LOVE being a part of the Ellsworth family! Ellsworth is truly a special place to work, learn, and grow! Second grade was my favorite grade as a child and a magical time for me- it is my hope to provide the same wonderful experience for your child too!
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education, a Master of Education in Reading Specialization, and the Ohio Reading Endorsement. I also received the designation as a Master Teacher by the state of Ohio. Prior to these degrees, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising and enjoyed a wonderful career as a Visual Merchandiser for a major department store. I'm currently working to obtain a Teacher Leader Endorsement. Outside of the classroom, my interests include drawing, reading, traveling, & spending time with family. I live with my husband and our two brand new kittens, Leo and Axel. We are Disney fanatics, Steelers fans, and love being outdoors!
Bridging the home to school connection is important to me - I will use this website, email and reminder texts to ensure we remain on the same page. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me by email (email@example.com) or using the Remind app. Our partnership is the heart of supporting your child --- Let's make this an incredible year!
Here's to a WONDERFUL second grade journey---There's no better time to be a Hudson Explorer!!!
