• Hi! I am the newest first grade Cardinal addition. I have been teaching for 16.5 years. I have taught 3rd-5th grade...all subjects in some grades and ELA in the other grades. I have taught general education, GT, and SPED. I am married to my college sweetheart. I love spending time outdoors with my son and pup hiking, swimming, biking, and camping. Spending time with my Cardinals is so special to me,  and my Cardinal family will forever hold a place in my heart.
