I am so excited to teach kindergarten at Hale! I started teaching in 2006 and have taught both kindergarten and 5th grade. Kindergarteners have a contagious enthusiasm and a zest for fun that encourages their curiosity. They are amazing learners!  

I would like to thank the parents for giving me the opportunity to partner with you as an educator for your child. I hope to instill a life-long love of learning in a nurturing and fun environment that will motivate the kids to continue learning and wondering about the world around them. The academic and emotional growth of a kindergartener from fall to spring is the most astounding of all the grades, and is exciting to watch and be a part of!
