I am very excited to be a part of this incredible journey! Kindergarten is such an important time of a child's life and I am truly blessed that I get to be a part of it. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2014 and my Master's Degree in Reading in 2018. This will be my 9th year teaching Kindergarten. I enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors in my free time. Please make sure that you follow Oakland Owls on Facebook and check the DOJO for all of the newest information and important dates. Oakland is a wonderful school and I am committed to making your childs first year a fantastic one!

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
