5th Grade Team
Hey Wildcats! This year I will begin my 16th year in the classroom. I love doing anything and everything that involves being creative in the classroom. I especially love using technology. Before I started my teaching career, I worked in the banking industry, but decide that working in a career field of helping to develop young minds was more important.
I am looking forward to a great year in 5th grade!
