Welcome to 5th grade! I am excited to be your child's teacher this year!
I have been married to my husband, Bruce for 28 years, have three daughters (ages 27, 25 and 20) and a grandaughter who is 10 months old! We have lived in Huntersville since we moved here from NY in 2000. I have taught at Royal Oaks School of the Arts for my entire teacher career; teaching 4th and 5th grade. I love integrating the arts into our reading, math, science and social studies lessons to make them engaging and memorable. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child this year and having a wonderful year!
