It is easiest to reach me by email or to phone the office in case of emergency since I do not usually answer outside calls during my teaching time.
I expect all students to treat each other, and all adults, with respect and care. I also expect students to follow instructions the first time given and to always try their best. I expect students to be quiet at the appropriate times, while enjoying conversation when the time is right. I expect all students to do the assigned work in the allotted time and to ask for help if they are not understanding.
I have been teaching in the Valley Park School District for 31 years. I have taught 6th grade for 20 years before moving to 4th grade. I have a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Maryville University; with an undergraduate degree from Harris-Stowe State University.
I am married and have two children, one who lives in New York City and one in college. I currently have 2 dogs who love going on walks and playing in the yard. I love to read, relax on my deck, or spend time at Table Rock Lake. I also love watching Blues Hockey and love listening to all types of music, especially Blues, Jazz, Old Rock and Roll and Country.
