Welcome to 3rd Grade!
I am excited for our new school year here at Green Valley. Our team is looking forward to learning and having fun with our students. I will be teaching Reading/Language Arts and Social Studies and I cannot wait to start our adventure for this school year.
Your child will have Reading/Language Arts and Social Studies with me, and will travel to Mrs. Ckodre's class for Math and Science. You can access Mrs. Ckodre's web page under my Home Page link on the left.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

I believe that a teacher is an instrument to influence, encourage and provide a pathway to the future. A good teacher can inspire students to obtain their potential by making an impression that lasts not only during a school year, but continuing to last for a lifetime of success.
I want to promote life-long learners.
One of my favorite teachable moments is the following video clip from the 80's movie, Footloose. As a teacher, I will often teach my students first in a traditional manner and then will have to teach in various ways to help my students understand. All children learn in different ways. Finding the way each child learns is the art of teaching. This clip is a great example of what I believe learning is; it is also the way I feel when a child who has struggled finally reaches success!
2019 -2020 will be my 14th year as a 3rd grade teacher at Green Valley. I am proud to be an educator. The 3rd grade team looks forward to the new school year. I co-teach with Mrs. Ckodre; I teach English, Language Arts, Reading and Social Studies and Mrs. Ckodre teaches Math and Science.
