I am super excited for a fun year of learning with your child. I am sure your child is getting excited to see what our classroom looks like and what we will be learning this school year. You will find that I teach and learn along side my students and their parents! When we work as a team, the growth in your child will be amazing. This website will give you all the information you will need to know for this school year. I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year!

This is my 26th year teaching in the Upper Perkiomen School District.
I taught learning support K-3rd grade for 10 years. This is my 16th year teaching first grade.
I am married to my husband, Brian. We have 3 children. We have Bailey, 20 years old, Alyssa, 17 years old and Erica, 13 years old.
We have many pets.
I attended East Stroudsburg University and graduated with my teaching degree in Elementary and Special Education.
I then attended Kutztown University for my Masters in Education.
The following school supplies are voluntary. Your child does not have to bring them to school.
- students will need an old T-shirt (a little larger than what they wear) for an art smock
- Headphones for use with the student's Chromebook
- 2 thin dry erase markers
- a box of sharpened pencils
- 3 glue sticks
- Wet Ones Wipes (child friendly)
- a box of tissues
- a box of colored pencils (if your child would like)
- a box of crayons (if your child would like) **I supply everyone with 8 crayons.
- a supply pouch (if your child would like)
**As we go through the school year, the students will need small items brought in from school for our Everyday Math.
Thank you. As we become close to running out of wipes and tissues, I'll let everyone know.
