Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 school year! This year is going to be incredibly exciting as we make our new location feel like home. It will take a while for all us to learn our way around the building, but we will do it together!
I also look forward to building strong, collaborative relationships in our classroom. I want to foster not only my relationship with students but also new connections between students. While academics are important, I believe relationships combined with skills are essential for success in school. I want a student in my classroom to know they are cared for; not only by their teacher but also by their peers, in addition to having the skills to keep track of obligations; prioritize assignments, formulate questions and evaluate and assess answers.
That is my philosophy of teaching... other facts about me are that I have two children. My daughter lives in Telluride, Colorado and my son lives in town. I love animals and have three dogs at home, as well as a flock of chickens and three horses. I love to read, knit, and spend time outside. I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
