This is my 23rd year teaching at Ward Highlands! I have taught Pre K, first, second and third grade but my all time favorite grade to teach is KINDERGARTEN!!! I am also excited to say that 3 of our WHE teachers are graduates of my kindergarten class :-)! I am also privileged to teach next door to my favorite kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Gray, my daughter :-)!
My husband (a retired middle school teacher) and I raised 5 fabulous children. They are all graduates of Ward Highlands, Ft. King Middle and Forest High Schools. They all went on and graduated from great Universities and all have successful careers. I am so proud of them all! Their hard work and education in Marion County Schools has helped in their success!
My goal, as your child's kindergarten teacher, is to encourage a love of learning and with high expectations, be the best they can be! With your help, I want them to strive for success and feel good about themselves as well.
Read, read, read to your child and make it a special time for both of you. Look through their papers each night and review anything they may be having trouble with. If you ever have any questions, please email me or call the school and I will be happy to help you.
As this is my 30th year teaching, I will be retiring at the end of this year. This is not exactly how I planned to finish out my career in teaching, but I couldn't do it without all your support. Thank you so much!!!!
