This year is my 20th year of teaching at Hudson Middle School. I can honestly say this is a great place to learn and build lasting relationships with friends and teachers. Since my first day of 1st grade, I have known that I wanted to be a teacher. I feel very blessed to have a career in an area that I look forward to everyday in a community with wonderful students and parents. After 35 years of school, I STILL get excited in August when the school supplies are on the shelves and class lists are posted on the door! My goal this year is to make learning meaningful in my classroom everyday. I want ALL of my students to leave sixth grade with a love for learning, reading, and writing.
When I am not teaching, I spend most of my time with my husband, Rob and my two daughters, Emily and Allison. Emily is in 9th Grade and Allison is in 5th Grade. Out of school, I enjoy reading, coaching softball, and doing anything outdoors. On a sunny day, you will find my family outside enjoying the sunshine!
In Language Arts this year, students will improve their reading and writing skills through novels, short stories, and technology. We will analyze and interpret multiple texts to get a better understanding and improve our critical thinking skills.
Please refer to my classroom expectations page for more specific details about my classroom expectations and routines.
I look forward to an amazing year!
