Welcome and thank you for visiting our classroom homepage!! I have been teaching for 11 years, and 10 of these have been teaching 6th graders. I love their energy, enthusiasm, and ability to grow as learners, leaders, and members of a team. As always, my goal is that my students work AND play hard, creating memories as we learn. 
       When I am not at DVMS, I love to spend time with my husband, Jeff, and our two children, Noah and Isabella. Together we enjoy exploring new places, bowling, and working out at the gym whenever possible. Reading is also a passion of mine. 
       I love what I do and have a passion to work with children, promoting confidence, independence, growth, and a successful education. I look forward to working with you and your family.
