First Grade Teacher
Bachelor of Arts in Integrated Science from USC
Years at cds:
Favorite thing about teaching 1st grade:
I really enjoy connecting with my first graders and seeing how far they come in 9 months! First graders get excited about the little things and there are lots of ‘ah ha’ moments. Also, no day is ever like the one before!
my word for 2017:
Prepared – I have a busy life between home and school. My goal this year is to always look ahead and be prepared so that I can get the most out of every moment!
favorite cds tradition:
Bigs and Littles. The first graders are assigned a fifth grader that will serve as their big brother or sister until the big graduates. At that time, the little becomes a big and gets their own little. The relationships that are developed are priceless!
I enjoy spending time with my family, playing with Darby (the puppy), reading, boating, and playing tennis
