About Me

First and foremost .... I love teaching! I cannot believe that I am beginning my 21st year in education. I have taught sixth grade and second grade, but my heart is in first grade. I have my Master's degree in Teaching and Learning, and am returning this fall to pursue my Administrative degree. However, I must admit that most of what I learn comes from the boys and girls that I get to spend my day with.

Also, I am excited to share that we will have a student teacher as a part of our classroom this fall. I am excited for you to meet Mr. Louie Herrera once our school year begins.
