Welcome to Room 1


This will be my 5th year teaching at Twin Oaks.  Over the course of my career, I have had the opportunity to teach every grade from kindergarten through fifth grade.  No matter what grade I teach, I love to integrate technology into our learning to prepare students to compete in a digital world.  I emphasize equity and diversity to create an environment where all students have a sense of belonging and feel safe to take risks in their learning. 

Our classroom emphasizes effective effort and high expectations.  I welcome the increased rigor and depth required by the Common Core Standards.  My students learn that “Smart is not something you are.  It is something you get through hard work and practice.”

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead.
