I am so excited to begin my 17th year teaching First Grade! I love teaching first grade because the boys and girls are so eager to absorb new information. I love to see their faces when they learn something new. First Graders are full of adventure and love exploring new things, and I love being a fascilator for their learning. I love reading stories with my students and making the characters come alive for them.
My classroom has a very special member named Buddledee. Buddledee is a Bunny, and he loves for boys and girls to read to him! Buddledee is very popular at CVESand he has many adventures!
I began my teaching career at Calera Elementary School, and moved to Creek View 9 years ago to be back home! I was born and raised in Alabaster, and I am proud to be a graduate of Thompson High School, Class of 1991!
My husband and I live in Alabaster with our two daughters, who also attend Alabaster City Schools. We have two dogs, and 5 cats! Most weekends, you will find me at the ballfield watching my children play softball or soccer. I love to go swimming and shopping, going to the movies, and going out to dinner!
