Welcome to an exciting new school year! I am looking forward to a wonderful year filled with lots of learning and success. This is my 19th year of teaching. Learning is a journey filled with lots of surprises and discoveries along the way. My philosophy in education is to instill a love of life-long learning in my students. I am married with two children, a 20-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son. My favorite hobby is reading! Reading is like a journey where you paint the pictures as you read the words and learn new things along the way. I look forward to working with everyone!
