This is going to be an exciting and way different school year than what we are used to, but we are all in this together! I am so excited to begin this new journey with you!  I am honored and thrilled to be your child's teacher this year. This year is even more exciting  for me because I am now teaching 6th grade.  We will be very busy this year learning and growing. It will be different, but I know we will be successful.  I am still a very hands-on teacher and I believe that school is more than reading, writing, and math. In my class, every student will be treated with respect, kindness, care and compassion.  I believe in mixing humor and laughter with the seriousness of education.  I strongly believe that every child who enters our classroom wants to grow, learn and be successful. I am ready and willing to work with you to give you everything you need for success.  Please do not hesitate to contact me  if you are having any type of problem in the class.  Such as: logging in or just understanding what we will be doing in our remote classes.  I  believe that when students, teachers and parents work together, students reap the amazing benefits! Take care of yourselves and each other and most importantly, BE SAFE!
