A little about me...

This is my fourth year teaching.  Before teaching, I spent 10 years in the hospitality industry.  My B.S. is Family and Consumer Sciences and I have earned my Masters in the Art of Teaching.  I have two beautiful children and a wonderful supportive husband.  My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family.  I also enjoy caffeine, chocolate, crafting, and listening to my “God songs” as my daughter calls it.  My favorite scripture verse is Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my shepherd, I have all that I need.”

A little about our class...

This year we will be incorporating all four core subjects: Math, ELA (Reading, Writing, Spelling), Social Studies, and Science as well as Religion.  We will be taking math to the next level with place value, multiplication, division, and fractions.  ELA will consist of weekly spelling tests, stories from their Journeys textbook, and grammar from their Wonders textbook.  Social Studies will mainly focus on the United States this year -its geography and history.  Science will incorporate a variety of topics from earth science, physical, and life science.  I hope to include as much hands-on experience as possible.  The Freckle website will be included regularly for all subjects.
