Why I teach:  I believe that every student has the right to an equal education. All students are teachable and capable of learning. I strive to provide differentiated instruction to all students with a clear purpose, high expectations, on-going feedback, and consequences. I attempt to create an environment where students make their own connections to their learning. I believe that knowledge builds self-reliance. I stay centered on the students by planning, modifying, adapting, nurturing, listening, reflecting, and acting to the best of my ability.

My Classroom: I try to make my classroom interesting and organized. I want students to be engaged in learning while the environment is comforting and upbeat. In order to motivate, challenge, and support students in both academic and social areas, I model behavior.  Encouraging the class to set a purpose at the beginning of each day helps the students make connections between new information and old.

My hobbies: I love the beach. Reading is my number one past-time. I enjoy sewing and making all kinds of outfits for my two granddaughters. Spending time outside while kayaking, gardening, and riding bikes relaxes me.
