Welcome to fourth grade! I am so excited to be teaching your child and working with you. This will be my second year teaching 4th grade STEM. I have also taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades. I received my Bachelor's of Science degree from Austin Peay State University. Originally from Dallas, I grew up in the Army and have lived in the Ft.Campbell/Clarksville area since the early 80's. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Fred, for over 30 years. We have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. I love to travel (especially to the beach), go antiquing, and cook. I feel each child is a unique individual with his or her own learning style. I strive to create a positive supportive environment where that uniqueness is embraced. I look forward to guiding your child as he or she reaches their full potential this year! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I am here to help.

Oakland uses a positive behavior matrix that promotes student awareness in expected behaviors.  This matrix can be seen in every room, throughout the building, is described in our school handbook located in the front of each student's provided OWL planner, and builds off our character trait acronym (WISDOM) banners handing from our foyer ceiling.  Each desired trait is broken down to identify school related desired behaviors to create student understanding and awareness of expectations.  These indicators are also linked to Class Dojo, which is used not only by teachers but throughout the entire building by special area teachers, special service providers, support staff, and administrators to provide consistency for our students and with parent communication.  The six overarching categories/character traits that student friendly indicators are broken down for on the visual matrix that students are taught about and expected to strive for are:

  • Work Ethic
  • Integrity
  • Self-discipline
  • Determination
  • Optimism
  • Motivation

Follow the link below to view the full "Dojo and Matrix Cheat Sheet".  This is designed to show the connection between the values on the matrix and the skills that are on Class Dojo.
