Hi There, Welcome!

        Welcome to our classroom page! Here you will find important information about our classroom, upcoming events, our newsletter, homework and much more. I am excited and ready to get to know each student. My mission as a teacher is to support students as they uncover and explore new ideas in a safe, welcoming space.  I will meet children where they are and take them further. I believe in acknowledging and appropriately gratifying hard work and self-determination. Students will have the cross-curricular foundations to help prepare them for life.

  • Students may want to bring a jacket and a water bottle.
  • Notes should be signed by parents, even those that are emailed.
  • Lunch is not free this year.
  • Please bring disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer

  • Ask family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to purchase cards.
