I am ready to begin another  fantastic year teaching first grade!! My classroom is ready to have students come and have fun learning.  


Let's enjoy this first grade year together. I believe my classroom parents and myself are a team that work together in loving, nurturing, and educating our children. Seeing them learn and grow is so rewarding.


Snapshot about me:

*Married to Joel for 44 wonderful years

*This will be my 30th year of teaching elementary: fifth, fourth,third, first, and kindergarten

*I have been teaching at Odell for 12 years, began as the school's intervention specialist for 2 years

*I have my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and my Masters Degree for Integration of the Arts in Curriculum

*I absolutely love teaching children and creating a classroom experience with high expectations and hands on learning. 



  • Reading is the most important foundation in the primary grades.  I would suggest oral reading every night for at least 10 -20 minutes.  This will improve their comprehension and fluency.

    During virtual teaching, homework will reallyv be their independent classwork given each day through my teaching. I will be grading their work each week.
