Bio

I have been teaching fourth grade for 30 years. I taught a self-contained fourth grade where I taught all subjects for 10 years. For the last 20 years, I have taught only math and science. I was Teacher of the Year in 1996 and the readers of the local newspaper chose me as the Best Teacher in 1996 and 1998.

I was born and raised in this area and have strong ties to the community. Some of my hobbies include reading, walking, and singing.
