Welcome to Distance Learning


    Hello, and welcome to third grade!  I am looking forward to getting to know your children, and I hope we will be able to stay open without interruption for the entire school year.  We will be using a great deal of technology starting Day 1.  We've spent the last three weeks learning and practicing Microsoft Teams as a platform in case of interruption.  Here is a link for you to use to help you and your child with this platform.





    Now, a little bit about me. I grew up and lived in Michigan until 1990 when we moved to the Dunnellon area.  I have been working at Romeo Elementary since the 1992-1993 school year.  I was hired on as a temporary para, but I'm still here 28 years later!  For 14 years, I was a paraprofessional working in all grade levels.  In 2002, I went back to college to complete my degree in Elementary Education.  I worked full time and went to school in the evenings.  In 2007, I was hired as a 3rd grade teacher.  I've been in 3rd almost the whole time, except for 1 year in second grade and 1 year with a 2nd/3rd grade combo.  The 20-21 school year will be my 14th year as a teacher.  I teach math and science, and team with Mrs. Alexander.  She teaches reading and social studies to our 2 classes.  Together, we are looking forward to a wonderful school year, even with all the changes due to COVID!  Feel free to contact either of us via email, phone, or Class Dojo with any questions or comments.
