I have a wonderful husband, daughter, and step-daughter. My daughter has given me the most precious gift, a baby girl granddaughter. She was born on July 27, 2023. The most important thing I strive to do is create a fun learning environment for my students. I implement various learning strategies to help all students succeed in their learning. This is my 24th year teaching and thrilled to be your child's second grade teacher this year at Oakland. For me, no other profession can be as rewarding as it is than being a teacher. At school, your child's classroom is his/her family away from home. I will strive to make this a positive experience for both you and your child. Together, as a team, we can move your child forward to achieve academic growth. I am looking forward to a wonderful year.

Every day we work hard and are proud to show parents what we have learned. Please check your child's take home folder each night and place it back in their backpack to ensure it comes back to school the next day. Communication is an important skill. Please help your child develop these skills by asking them to explain and demonstrate to you what they learned each day. If you ever have questions or concerns, please reach out to me through ParentSquare, email, send a note, call and leave a message. I will respond during my planning time or after school. 

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
