Dear Parents & Guardians,
I graduated in 2011 with my Master in Teaching From West Virginia University. Before becoming a teacher I was a respiratory therapist for over ten years. I am married and have two daughters Lydia and Emma. We have three crazy dogs and three adorable kittens. I love teaching and I am so thankful I get to work at the best school in Berkeley County. I am currently working on my certification as a Technology Instructional Specials.
I am very excited to be teaching your children. I will be planning many exciting hands-on lessons that will make learning fun. I will create a productive classroom enviroment that is structured and kind. As your child's third grade teacher, I will be committed to ensuring your child's educational success. I strongly feel the lines of communication between school and home is extreemly important. I strongly believe that parents and teachers are partners in education and I value your imput and constant support. I will be using Class DoJo so you can keep up to date with behavior, pictures, material request, parent volunteer request, and reminders. Parents/guardian will be able to contact me via DoJo messaging, email or by leaving a message with the school office. I will return messages calls as soon as possible, my goal is the same day or within 24. hours. Please keep in mind I could be out of the school enviroment for a personal day, sick child or training therefore DoJo and email can be the fastest turn around.
PLEASE TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS NO: pens, glitter, permanate makers, do not bring toys to school including Pokemon or trading ards. Personal cellphone and electronic devices are not allowed to be turned on or out of backpacks during the school day. Chapstick is welcomed, but lipgloss and makeup should not be used during school.
