Welcome to the exciting, adventurous journey I call first grade!  This is my thirty third year teaching first grade at Hawthorne, and I am looking forward to a year filled with friendship, fun, growth, and development with your child.  In my classroom, I recognize each student as a unique person with individual needs and learning styles.  My main goal is to find the strengths in every child and build on them.  I believe that it is my responsibility to provide the students with the tools they will need to become lifelong learners.  I hope to instill in the children a love of exploration and discovery.  I want the learning process to be a positive experience.


Well, it is hard to believe that our year is coming to an end.  The children have grown into helpful, caring, and enthusiastic students ready for second grade!  It has been so exciting to see their growth academically and socially.  Thank you for sharing your child with me!

I would like to say a special thank you for your support, kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness throughout the year.  Parents truly make the year successful!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful, restful, and safe summer.  I will miss teaching at Hawthorne School!
