Welcome to my classroom website! This is my twenty first year of teaching Kindergarten. I am a proud alumni of some great Kenton County schools - White's Tower, Twenhofel Middle School, and Simon Kenton High School. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Eastern Kentucky University in 1998 and Master's from Northern Kentucky University in 2008.
I live in Independence and have two beautiful daughters - Anna who is ready to begin her sophomore at Simon Kenton and this year, my oldest, Elayne, will also be a sophomore at the University of Louisville. I have been married for 22 years to my wonderful husband, Scott. We also have a Maltese Poodle, London who is 14 years old and this summer we added a new kitten to our home, Loki.
I believe that every child has the right to worthwhile learning experiences. Students should be engaged and interact with one another to promote a positive self esteem and cooperating skills to prepare them for their future. It is my goal to provide engaging activities that challenge every child, no matter what level. Hopefully, my students will realize that learning is fun and with it comes great rewards. I am so blessed to have found the career that I love - I hope you enjoy the Kindergarten experience as much as my students and I do!
