Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to be teaching Kindergarten for my second year at Beckemeyer Elementary! This is my 17th year teaching! I have taught Pre-school, First Grade, and Kindergarten, where I have spent the majority of my teaching career. I am passionate about teaching kindergarten. I enjoy seeing the tremendous growth my little learners achieve in their first year of school. I love teaching them how to read, write simple sentences, and the importance of being a kind and respectful friend. We will spend a lot of time building our classroom community through daily conversations about respect, responsibility, and reflections of our lives and actions.
My husband, Jimmy, and I live in Litchfield with our children Grace and Griffin and our puppy Otis. Grace is 8 years old and in third grade and Griffin is 4 1/2 years old and in his second year of Pre-school. Otis, our puppy, is 7 months old. He is a Bernese Mountain Dog. He loves his humans and enjoys chewing on everything! He is going to be a very BIG dog when he grows up. Our family loves being outdoors, vacationing to the beach, playing and watching sports, and being silly together.
I look forward to having a great year with you and your children. I believe that an excellent home and school connection is key to learning success. Please write me a note, email, or call if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to check-in! I am very flexible and willing to meet with you anytime.
