I come from a family of teachers; both of my parents taught for 30 years, and their influence rubbed off on me. I loved going to school with them and getting their classrooms ready for a new year. The beginning of each school year is always exciting and busy! I look forward to getting to know each child in my class, and finding ways to help them succeed. Working with children is my passion, and something I enjoy every day.
Our second grade classroom is a busy place! We spend our mornings reading, writing, and doing word work. Our afternoons are spent in enrichment classes, math, science, social studies, and shared writing activities. Homework expectations include 15 minutes of reading each night, practicing math facts for a few minutes each night, and working with spelling sorts.
I have been teaching at Erin School since 1997, the first 12 years in 4K, and currently in second grade. I earned my BS in Early Childhood Education from UW-Milwaukee and my Master's in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University Wisconsin. I recently extended my license through 8th grade through the EXCEL Center at UW-Oshkosh.
