Hello!  It is so exciting being a Third Grade Teacher at Verndale Public School!  Teaching and spending time with children is a passion of mine, so this year is going to be a great one for me and for my students!  I can't wait.
Teaching isn't my only passion.  I love spending time with my husband, Jake, our eight year old son, Michael, and our 2 and a half year old son, Simon, too. He and Michael are such joys and blessings to my husband and to me, and I am so grateful to God for my lovely little family.
I have many interests and hobbies.  Some of them are playing piano, singing, reading historical fiction and non-fiction novels, wearing "sparkles", four-wheeling, hiking, fishing, and observing all the different kinds of nature in our beautiful world, especially animals and certain insects like butterflies and fireflies!  I am so excited to discover all of the hobbies and interests that my students have and to learn much more about each of them! Life is good!
