Welcome to Third Grade at Hillcrest!
I am excited to get to know your child this year and lead them on a journey of learning. I have been teaching for 10 years and I have been at Hillcrest for the last 5 years. I love being a Heron! I have also taught grades 4 & 5 and music to all ages.
My husband and I have lived in Oak Harbor for 18 years and we love it here. As often as possible we enjoy the beaches and forests, and we notice and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us on this island.
I really love 3rd graders because they are full of life and ideas and creativity. I want them to grow not only in their academic skills but also into brave and kind individuals. In order to achieve this, we, as teacher and parent, must work together to support, guide and teach your child. Please feel free to contact me with concerns or questions so that we can give your child the best experience in school this year. This year we will work hard, but we'll do it together - and have some fun along the way too!
