  • Dear Students and Families,

    Hello!  Welcome to our first grade family at Crescent Harbor Elementary.  I am so excited to be  part of the first grade team this year. After 16 years of teaching second grade at Crescent Harbor, I am thrilled to be teaching first grade for the first time. I have been teaching in Oak Harbor since 2004.  Prior to that, I taught second grade in Bellevue.  I have two children of my own that attend Oak Harbor Public Schools.  They have enjoyed all the opportunities that the schools have provided.

    Our primary goal for first graders is to instill a love of learning and discovery, to build independence as a learner and a citizen, to foster a safe environment for all children, and to provide necessary resources to help students meet academic standards.

    We continually strive to help our students support each other as learners.  Working together promotes student learning and achievement.  Students are encouraged to develop and practice skills in problem-solving, listening and speaking, critical thinking, conflict resolution, and teamwork.  

    I look forward to meeting and working with you all!  Welcome to first grade!
