Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to third grade! I am so happy to be your teacher this school year.
I am excited to be a part of this amazing Redwood Elementary third grade team! I’ve taught all levels of education in various settings in both California and Oregon. After teaching various grades, I believe that third grade is one of the best! It is a year of much growth, both academic and social. I am eager to share this journey with you this school year.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in history, a Master’s degree in Teaching, and I am certified to teach kindergarten through twelfth grade.
My husband also works for the school district and is an Assistant Principal at Grants Pass High School. We have three sons, Michael is a college student at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona, Andrew is attending RCC, and Brandon is an 10th grader at GPHS. We love traveling, golfing, hiking, and just being outside together.
I believe that building relationships is crucial for learning and growing together. I am eager to get to know each and every one of you! I strongly believe that communication is key and am looking forward to working closely with each of the families in my classroom.
Third grade is a great year! Mrs. Dean, Mrs. Pump, and myself have been working together over the summer months in preparation for this school year. We are very excited to work as a team to help all of our third graders achieve great success. I’m looking forward to a great school year!
