I have the pleasure of being your child’s fourth-grade math/science teacher. I am teaching my favorite subjects this year, allowing me to offer your child my best practices! This is my 16th year teaching overall and my 7th year teaching for Oak Harbor Public Schools at Hillcrest Elementary.
I am excited about forming an amazing classroom family in 4th grade with the help of my teaching partner, Mrs. Walker. This will be our second year teaching together.
I firmly believe that effective communication between home and school is an important component of a child’s educational success. I encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s learning. As a Navy wife and a parent to two daughters (20 & 18), I believe that when learning is important to the parent, it is also important to the child. All children can learn and mistakes are how we learn.
Please reach out with any concerns or questions about the school year.
P.S. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and my classroom reflects that. I usually have the children sorted into Hogwarts houses during the school year. This allows teamwork and is an effective motivator for appropriate behaviors.
