All About Me
Welcome to my Web page!  This is my 12th year teaching special education at Oak Grove Elementary. I teach reading, math, writing and social skills to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. I am also a co-sponsor of an after school club called Games R Us where students can hang out and play board games.  

I have two mottos in my room.  The first is "Choose Kindness". This is taught specifically and intentionally as we go about our day. The second motto is "Work hard, Play hard!" I reward hard work with game time, craft time, or special treats like root beer floats!

I live in Blue Springs. I have three grown daughters and two step sons, who are still teenagers. I love to travel, and I recently took a trip to Italy to see the Amalfi Coast, Rome, and Venice. I also love to see historic sites in the United States, such as Jamestown in Virginia, and Gettysburg in Pennsylvania.

I love teaching, and it is a privilege and joy to spend my day with my students!
