Welcome to my 3rd grade class. I love teaching, and I am so excited to share this year with you! It’s going to be full of fun, adventure, and lots of learning. One of the best parts of teaching is getting to know my students and their families. I thought you might like to know a little bit about me, too.
I share my home with my husband Neil, our daughter Zahra, and our two cats Mike and Manny. In my free time, I enjoy baking, crafting, hiking, and reading. I especially enjoy finding new books to share with my students.
This is my third year teaching 3rd grade at Cannon Elementary. Before that, I taught in Cecil County, Maryland. Maryland is just one of many states I have lived in throughout my life. When we moved here in 2015, I was more than happy to trade the snowy winters for more warm weather here in Texas. Throughout the course of my career, I have taught 4th grade for 3 years, 3rd grade for 5 years, and elementary music for a total of 7 years.
My goal as a teacher is to help my students find a love of learning and to guide each of them to be their personal best. I love to see my students actively engaged in problem-solving and thinking creatively. It makes me happy to hear them asking thoughtful questions. Curiosity can open amazing doors! I also enjoy learning from my students, as I know each of them has knowledge and insights to offer me, too. I am a strong believer in creating a partnership between home and school and maintaining open lines of communication. With that in mind, I always welcome questions, comments, and suggestions. Let’s have a great year together!
