Hello First Grade Families!

I am so excited to start the school year with your child in my class. First grade is so exciting because of all the leaps and bounds you will see your child reach for and achieve! This year your child's reading will blossom, their math skills will soar, and their curiosity and joy for learning will be embraced. The best part - this is just the beginning! 

I cannot wait to get to know all my students more, and I thought I would share a little bit about myself. I graduated from West Chester University with dual degree/teaching certificates in Elementary(EGP) Education Grades K-4th and Special Education K-8. I am a Neshaminy alum and am thrilled to be back at Pearl Buck where I attended as a student! My favorite thing about teaching is to see just how much students gain and learn in one year. From their confidence to their math skills, I feel blessed to witness and foster the magic that happens in the classroom daily. In my free time, I instruct dance for the Pennsylvania School of Performing Arts. I  love traveling and finding new recipes to try at home for dinner. 

First Grade is the best! We have some amazing projects from our 1st grade zoo books to our wax museum presentations! The milestones your child will accomplish this year are incredible and I feel privileged to be on that journey with them. I believe nothing is more powerful than the team created by teachers and parents. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone.
