5th Grade Team

Hey Wildcats! This year I will begin my 19th 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. Also, I am certified in Elementary Education K-6, Reading K-12, ESOL Endorsement and Middle Grades Social Science 5-9.

I am looking forward to a great year in 5th grade!
