I am so excited to have you in my fourth grade class this year! It is going to be a fantastic year filled with exploring, investigating, and learning about so many things! We will explore the USA, investigate magnetism/electricity, animal studies, and land/water in science, problem solve, expand our comprehension/critical thinking skills, and so much more!
         I have taught in the Council Rock School District for ten years, and this will be my sixth year teaching fourth grade. I have taught kindergarten, first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades troughout all of my years of experience. I also have my Masters in Education,along with a Reading Specialist Certification.
         I had a funfillled summer spent with my husband and three boys! We traveled to Ocean City for a few days, visited our local pool, and spent time with family/friends. My three sons are Ryder (10 years old), Jackson (7 years old) and Briggs (3 years old), and they definitely keep me on my toes! They love to play sports,look for bugs, ride bikes, and swim. We also got a new Cavalier King Charles puppy this summer, and we named her Ruby! I can't wait to hear all about your summer when we meet!
         Be sure to check the supplies list on my website before school begins. Please label all of your supplies for the first day of school. 
         All of the fourth grade teachers are excited to have you as our students this year! I am looking forward to seeing you at our Meet and Greet on Thursday, August 29th! Until then, here are a few fun facts about me:
    1. I love french fries!
    2. I have been going to OCNJ since I was a kid.
    3. My favorite season is Autumn.
    4. I have hosted the CR Media Festival with Mr. Marcus three times!
    5. I love coffee!
    I can't wait to hear all about you! Enjoy the remaining days of summer and get ready for a wonderful year!
