I am excited to be here at Steuart Weller for my first year of teaching! I look forward to teaching third grade and bringing a lot of hands-on activities and experiments into the classroom to enhance learning.
I have a bachelor's degree in Marketing and a master's in Elementary Education. I have three children (2 of which are in college!) that were my inspiration for becoming a teacher. I have always felt fortunate when they had teachers who inspired them and I look forward to being the same kind of inspiration for your children! It is going to be a great year!
