I am a local of Stafford, I've lived here my entire life, I was a Wolverine and graduated from North Stafford High School in 2003. I worked to pay my way through college and graduated from my alma mater, University of Mary Washington, with my undergraduate degree in 2011 and my Master's in 2012.This is my 7th year teaching at Garrisonville Elementary. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading books and drawing.
I love to learn from my students, I think you can only teach well if you continue to be a student. I am looking forward learning and growing with my students. It's going to be the year that's going to make a difference!
In 5th grade we will have one-to-one technology in the classroom. All of our students will have a computer assigned to them. Many of our assignments will be on computers, which is wonderful because our kids are highly motivated by technology.
Most of my communication is through Classroom Dojo. Please make sure that you have signed up so that you can recieve classroom updates as well as feedback and communication about your child through this mode. I take lots of photos and love to share what the kids are doing, so please check Dojo often.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Looking forward to a great year of growing together!
