This is going to be an exciting school year! We have to remember that  we are all in this together! I am so excited about beginning this new journey with you!  I am honored and thrilled to be your child's teacher this year.  We will be very busy this year learning and growing.  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 your child is having any type of problem in the class.   I believe that when students, teachers and parents work together, students reap amazing benefits! Take care of yourselves and each other and, most importantly, BE SAFE!
