Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to First Grade! I am excited to have your child in my class. This will be my 15th year to teach here at Austin. I also spent nine years working in a pre-kindergarten program prior to teaching here full time. Teaching and working with children has been a passion of mine my entire life. My philosophy is that any child can learn in a nurturing and supportive environment. I strive to create a classroom where students are challenged daily and feel success and pride in everything they do. I can't wait to begin a new school year with each one of your children.
