Hi everyone! I'm so excited to meet you all, and start this journey with you and our students. I know this year in particular has a lot of unknowns, but have faith that we will navigate through these murky waters together. I never give up, and I know that when we work together, all things are possible.
This will be my 11th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten for 5 years and Pre-K/PPCD for 4 years. This will be my second year in first grade and don't tell anyone, but I LOVE first grade! Each school has brought me a wealth of knowledge. While teaching at The Early Childhood School, I was a mentor teacher and team leader for 4 years. This experience has made me comfortable with asking questions, problem-solving, and working in collaboration to do what is best for kids. I know the current experience of teaching during a pandemic will only make me (us) stronger, and having Stuber as our backdrop will give us all the support and community we will need.
I am originally from Kentucky. I moved with my husband, Will, in 2012. We now have three kids, Reith (almost 7), Eve (just turned 5), and Elle (2). My family brings me joy beyond measure, as well as a healthy dose of exhaustion. I wouldn't change a thing. Not true, I would maybe hire a full-time nanny and housekeeper!!! We also have a new addition to our dog family, Una. She is a Newdle! I Newfoundland and Poodle mix. She is 9 weeks old, and into everything! Thank goodness I have learned how to function amid chaos!
I love traveling, although not much lately. I have backpacked through Western Europe twice. I really want to make it to Australia and New Zealand as soon as my kids are old enough for such a long plane ride. I also love swimming, walking, baking and playing tennis. I dream of being on The Great British Baking Show! That's me!
I am looking forward to a great year!
