Welcome to the 2015–2016 school year. I am looking forward to a great year and am very excited to be your child’s teacher! This is my sixth year of teaching here at West Navarre Intermediate. Before that, I taught in Mobile, Alabama. However, I grew up here, in Gulf Breeze, so this is home to me and I’m very glad to be back! I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with an ESOL endorsement. My interests and hobbies include reading, shopping, going to the beach, and spending time with family and friends. I also try to stay active and even run the occasional race.
I really enjoy working with the students; it’s the highlight of my workday. Students come to 5th grade with nervousness about middle school being just around the corner. We cover so much in the curriculum and there’s so much going on with holidays, etc. that time will fly and before we know it it’ll be the end of the year, but they will be ready. One of the keys to their success, however, is having good communication between home and school, so please check the website, look for emails, and check for new information on newsletters too. Also, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. With your support, they can achieve so much more! Now, here’s to an amazing year!
