Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited for the 2018-2019 school year! This is my fifth year teaching fourth grade, and I absolutely love teaching this grade level! I attended the Killingly Public Schools from kindergarten through eighth grade. Growing up here has provided me with the opportunity to really know and understand my Killingly families. I completed my education at Eastern Connecticut State University with a degree in Elementary Education and English in 2011. I have been working in the Killingly district since 2008, when I began employment with the Before & After School Program and then substitute teaching. I am passionate about teaching literacy, particularly writing!
I live with my husband, two cats, guinea pig, and new puppy. I enjoy being active, spending time outdoors, music, and traveling. I value effort, hard work, dedication, and positivity from all of my students because I know that they are capable! I have high expectations for all of my learners because I want them to achieve their potential so that they are best prepared for the transition to middle school.
