Welcome to my class page! You can learn more about me here.

I wanted to be a teacher from a young age. My two younger brothers were my students and to this day they remind me of how I used to take them on imaginary class trips and make them dress up for class plays. I have taught fourth grade for most of these 39 years and I never get tired of it. I still love when I see the imaginary “light bulb” go on over their heads and I realize they understand a new concept that’s been taught . Every year there is a new group of students and a new adventure. I learn as much from them as they do from me. The fourth grade is a busy year with three State tests that are given: ELA, Math, and Science. The students love going to our new Science lab and exploring different topics. We use the chromebooks and Ipads for all our subjects, for projects, fun, and differentiation. Most importantly, we are a Catholic School. I teach the students the Ten Commandments, the Works of Mercy, etc. not just from a textbook (words) but from doing and seeing (actions).
