About Me


I have been teaching for 21 years.  During that time, I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades, and also junior high computers.  This is my 5th year at Bentley teaching 4th grade. I love getting to know my students and being an integral part of their learning experience.  Outside of school, my 7 year old daughter fills my days with wonderful adventures, humor, and love.
