I have been teaching for 17 years and absolutely love my job. My first teaching position was as a second grade teacher in Guam. I have taught every grade except Kindergarten. I was a reading coach for 8 years while living in Duval County, Florida. I moved from Florida December 2016 and began teaching in Clarksville-Montegomery County on January 9, 2017. This school year is going to be an exciting and challenging year. Welcome to 5th grade!!

Students should carry their "Owl Binders" to and from home. The binders will sometimes include important school information.

Their planners should remain in the "Owl Binder".  Every week, students will have new spelling/vocabulary words that will be written in the planners. Any upcoming test or important dates, will be written in the planner as well.

Homework will be placed on google classroom. The homework will always be something that the students will NOT need to print. They can submit the assignment online or written on notebook paper and brought in to class. Homework is given at the beginning of the week and not due until Friday of each week.

Be sure to check Dojo for other important school information. Please message  me if you ever have any questions or concerns.

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
