This is my 22nd year teaching sixth grade at Kinry Road Elementary School. I graduated from Mount Saint Mary College with a
Bachelor of Science in Education in December of 1998. I'm dually certified in Elementary and Special Education K-12. I have a
Master's Degree in Curriculum from Western Connecticut State University. My learning continues to grow! I'm always interested
in learning new approaches and strategies that will enhance my teaching and help my students grow academically. My joy of learning
will hopefully encourage my students to continue their education, and to reach any dream or goal that they may have!
School Activities: I facilitate the 6th Grade Student Council which helps the school and the community. I'm a member of the
Parent Teacher Association. I will continue to be an active member of the Kinry Road Community!
I'm also a mom :). I have three sons. Gus is 15, Owen is 13 and Logan is 9. They keep me very busy! :) My husband, Tim,
is a Physical Education Teacher for the Arlington Central School District. I truly enjoy spending time with my family!!
Mission For The Class
I believe that there are no limits to an individual's learning experiences. It is especially exciting to be involved with
teaching children because of their instinctive desire to learn. Teachers are in a position to expose students to new topics,
and that challenge becomes a privilege. I feel that education should be a meaningful experience. I would like to work cooperatively
with you to make this happen. As a team, your child will have a successful year with exciting opportunities. I'm very proud to be
your child's teacher and I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year!!
