Personal Background:

I have had the honor of being a teacher for 11 years. I am a wife to my loving husband, Tim, and a mother to three beautiful daughters, Cathleen, Mary, and Rebecca. I enjoy hanging out with my extended family and outdoor activities at the lake cabin.

Personal Teaching Philosophy:

My philosophy of teaching is to respect and show compassion to all. To teach is to guide and coach these amazing children to think with their heart, mind, and soul. I want the students to enjoy learning, to be a problem solver, and to be helpful to others.

Goals for the Class:

  • To have a safe, secure, stimulating environment in which children will flourish
  • To develop self-awareness
  • To develop empathy
  • To engage in a developmentally appropriate, stimulating curriculum
  • To have each child’s individuality celebrated  
  • To be supported by unconditional love and encouragement
