Welcome, Manatee families! I am so excited to have your students in my fourth year of teaching third grade. I have spent many years at Sope Creek, completing my student teaching and graduate research here in a primary classroom. It’s safe to say I love this school and its families. While this school year is starting out a little differently than others, we are still going to ensure that our classroom is full of engagement, academics, and FUN!
I love being with family, traveling, adventuring outside, and doing anything creative. My husband and I have a Shihtzu/Poodle named Olly. We just recently acquired a new family member – a Portuguese Water Dog named Penny! I love spending time with my dogs and family. But most of all, I love teaching. It is my passion and my calling, and I am very excited that I get to share it with you this year. I am looking forward to meeting everyone really soon. Enjoy the last moments of summer, and please do not hesitate to email me with any questions. My e-mail address is email@example.com.
