Welcome to Second Grade!This is my fifth year teaching Second Grade. I previously taught kindergarten for 4 years. This will be my 9th year as a certified teacher. I was a paraprofessional in the Coeur d' Alene School District for 10 years while I pursued my teaching degree. My interests are taking walks with my husband and two Australian Shepard dogs, Rusty and Ryder, boating, fishing and reading! I have 2 grown sons, 2 grandsons and a daughter-in-law who continue to make my heart proud.Second Grade is an exciting year of social, emotional and academic growth! I look forward to helping your child grow as a reader, writer and mathematician! I also greatly appreciate the time and effort you put in at home to support your child's education. I realize that life is very busy and every minute you spend with your child supporting him/her with their education gives them the tools to succeed.
