Hello fourth graders! I cannot wait to meet you all and get to know more about you. I know that this year will look different than any other year, but we will work together to make this year a great one! It will be a learning process for all of us, and we will have to see what works best for us! Sometimes new experiences can be fun and a chance to learn more about ourselves, so I am excited to start this year with you all! In the meantime, I will tell you a little about myself. This is my second year teaching at Hampton Oaks Elementary School and I could not be more excited. I originally from Pennsylvania, where I graduated from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education, with a minor in Psychology. I love learning and challenging my brain, which is why I wanted to be a teacher! I get to go to school for the rest of my life. How awesome is that?
When I am not at school, I love to read, stay active, cook, hangout with friends, and of course, watch Netlfix! Since I only moved to Virginia about a year ago, one of my favorite pasttimes recently is exploring the state and seeing what Virginia has to offer! It's been very exciting! Lastly, two important facts about me are that I love iced coffee and dogs! This is a little about me and I can't wait to get to know you!
To the families: thank you for trusting me with your children and I cannot wait to work together to make this year a successful year for all. I believe that each and every child has the ability to succeed if they are given the correct tools and strategies to do so. I am here to help guide and teach your students and help them develop their skills over the course of this school year. I want to motivate and challenge them to be the best they can be. While this year will look different than most and I am sure we will run into challenges, we will work together to find what helps make your child successful and what I can do to better support your child and family with virtual learning. Let's work together to make this year great! Please don't hesitate to contact me; I'd love to hear from you! I will also be reaching out frequently to check in and support you the best I can!
