Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to be teaching at Beckemeyer Elementary this year! This is my 16th 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. Grace is in second grade and Griffin is ejoying his first year of Pre-school. We love to be outdoors, the beach, being silly together, and living close to family and friends.
I look forward to having a great year with you and your children. I belive that an excellent home and school connection is key to learning success. Please write me a note in the agenda book, 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.
