Hello and welcome to the sixth grade! This is my ninth year at Hickory Ridge. I come from Pittsburgh, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature and history, and a Master’s in Teaching degree from the University of Pittsburgh. I love animals, reading, and traveling.After spending last year with seventh grade, I’m excited to be working with sixth graders again this year. I can’t wait to meet all of you and begin this new year!
