I am very excited about having your child in my class this year! This is my 8th year teaching 4th grade at Marie Schaefer, and prior to that, I taught 2nd grade at Moye here in O'Fallon for 7 years. I have been married for 30 years (in October!) and I have 2 sons, 26 and 23, and a daughter, 25, as well as a beautiful little granddaughter that just turned 2 last week! I also have 2 dogs, Roxy and Coconut, that are part of our family as well! I love gardening, walking, bike riding, reading, and TEACHING!!
I believe that your child is going to grow academically, socially, and emotionally as we partner together to make this the best school year yet! I am blessed to have your child in my classroom, and it is my desire to help them be successful in 4th grade! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, or maybe you just have some exciting information to share with me! :)
