Welcome to Canfield Middle School and 6th grade. I am looking forward to a great year. We will work very hard this year. I am excited to be teaching Science and Language Arts/Reading.In Science we will cover a variety of topics. Our year will begin with a study of Earth Science. Other topics will include: Astronomy, Energy, and the Water Cycle.Our year in Language Arts/Reading will be a busy one. We will focus on improving our writing skills with a variety of writing pieces - Narrative, Argumentative, and Informative writing. We will also be reading a variety of genre to entertain and teach us. Text analysis and comprehension strategies will be key component in our class.
This is my thirteenth year at Canfield. I also taught at Bryan Elementary for fourteen years. I have experience teaching 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.
I was born and raised in Coeur d'Alene having attended Dalton Elementary, Canfield (back when it was junior high), and Coeur d'Alene High School. I received my teaching degree from the University of Idaho. Go Vandals! I love to walk and do yoga. I have enjoyed participating in several 1/2 marathons. Baking, fudge making, digital scrapbooking, crafts, and spending time with family and friends are a few of my favorite activities. I also love time to relax with a good book (especially historical fiction and mysteries) and a good cup of coffee.
