All About Me :)
I am beginning my 27th year of teaching,  I have taught every grade between preschool and fifth grade, except for kindergarten.  I completed both my bachelor's and master's degrees from Northern Illinois University.  I met my husband Jim while working on my bachelor's degree.  Jim and I have been married for 24 years.  We have two children; Jenna (19) and Jaden (15).  We also have a dog named Jazz.  He is part chocolate lab and part chihuahua.  Yes, you read that correctly.  ;) Jenna graduated from Pearl City last year and is attending Northern Illinois University to major in Accounting and Sociology.  Jaden is a sophmore at Pearl City and plays drums in the band.  

This year will look and feel a bit different than in the past.  Due to COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, I have put all of our curriculum online, in case of another closure.  I will be using Google Classroom as my platform.  I will put all of the assignments, messages, and other information on here.  

We are continuing to use Eureka Math.  This curriculum is rigorous, but it allows the children to really make sense of how and why we do math problems.  I will post parent tip sheets in Google Classroom and will also post helpful videos on here for your viewing pleasure.  I will also post videos in Google Classroom to help with the assignments.  If you have any questions about any of the content, please reach out to me.  

Again, I look forward to working with your child and you during this school year. Let's work together to make this the best year yet for your child!
