Welcome back!

This is my 17th year teaching and I have been the JN Fries STEM program since it began in 2011. I am excited to continue working in this program as it continues to grow. 

I have taught both 7th and 8th grade here and I am so excited to be working with our 8th grade this year as the STEM Lead Teacher.  I look forward to working with our 8th grade families and preparing our students as they get ready for their move into high school.

Contact me with any questions.
