Welcome to 5th grade! I am looking forward to working with each of you, and getting to know you better throughout this year. My goal is to make this a special and successful year at Jefferson Elementary for your child. I am a career teacher, and received my Masters in Teaching at the University of St. Thomas. I am married and have 3 adult children. My daughter is an R.N, and my twin boys are both accountants. This year I will be teaching ELA. This includes reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, and grammar. If you have a question or concern do not hesitate to contact me. This is such an exciting year for your child, and it is my intention to make it a great one!
