Welcome to 4th Grade
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, fabulous fourth graders! This is my third year as a Hampton Oaks Hawk and I cannot wait to get started with another school year! It's going to be a year full of growth, learning, and adventures! Learning in our classroom will be collaborative, fun, and engaging. I know this school year isn´t starting off the way we are used to, but we are going learn this new program together, and make it as engaging, exciting and fun along the way. It will VIRTUALLY be the best FOURTH GRADE YEAR YET!
I was born and raised in the humid subtropical climate of Jacksonville, Florida, where I developed my love for Jaguar Football, southern BBQ and long days with my toes in the sand. I taught third grade for two years in Florida, and spent three years teaching fourth grade in Hawaii. My husband got stationed here in July of 2018 and I was welcomed with open arms to the Hampton Oaks family.
I have two adventurous, and ENERGETIC boys named Bryson(7), and Blake(4). I enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends, and being at the beach or pool.
PARENTS: I love to hear from YOU, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments in regards to your child and their success. Thank you for entrusting me with your most valuable gift, your child. I look forward to not only assisting them with their academic goals, but motivating and encouraging them to grow socially and emotionally, and to be the best that they can be. Most of all, I look forward to learning from them everyday. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions in regards to our current learning format. I know there will be some hiccups along the way, so please feel free to ask me anything.
My advice for fourth graders:
"Work Hard. Play Hard."
"Instead of trying to be the best in the world, try to be the best for the world."
"Give people high fives just for getting out of bed. Being a person is hard sometimes."
"You? You're awesome. You were made that way. You were made from love, to be loved, to spread love. Love is always loud."
STRONG MINDS. STRONG HEARTS. STRONG EFFORT.
