Welcome to Room 724!!
This is my 5th year at Carriel Junior High School as the school Interventionist. However, I have been a Response to Intervention (RtI) teacher since 2010. I truly enjoy working with Junior High Students. I have three boys; a Sophomore in College at West Point in New York, a Sophomore in High School, and an 8th grader. We love traveling together as a family and visiting new places. I enjoy gardening, reading, volunteering with Boy Scouts, camping/hiking, and spending time with my family; which also includes three cats and a dog!
My classroom is set up a little different than most. We have three teachers assisting students in Reading and Math, in groups no larger than six. Mrs. Miller and Ms. Lysakowski are a huge asset to the Intervention Program and go above and beyond daily to ensuring students succeed.
