Hello and Welcome to 5th Grade!  

Your child and I will spend a lot of time together over the next 10 months.  We will become readers, writers, explorers, scientists, and mathematicians.  We will spend a lot of time getting to know each other, as fostering a feeling of comfort is the foundation we need to continue to grow and risk take.  I will have the opportunity to find out their hobbies, interests, strengths and weaknesses inside and outside of the classroom.  Please find a little background information about me below.  

Did you know?

This is my 13th year teaching 5th grade in Bogert.

I love to spend my freetime playing in the backyard with my 4 kids
Ryan is 11
Lorenzo is 9
Joey is 5
Kyle is 3

When I have a free second, I love to read and write!!
My favorite books include:
The Giver 
Becoming Naomi Leon
Loser 
The Book Thief
The Kite Runner

I love to write poetry, op-eds and magazine articles centered around the teaching profession.

I look forward to fantastic year!  If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out via email or phone.
