I'm thrilled to be teaching fourth grade at Hillcrest Elementary! This school year, I'm team-teaching with fellow fourth-grade teacher Donna McLeod. I'm handling the reading, language arts, and social studies for both classes, while Ms. McLeod is in charge of math and science. This structure allows both of us to focus on our instructional specialty and gives our students a little taste of switching classes by subject matter before being thrown into the intermediate school. We think this is the recipe for success here at Hillcrest Elementary!
