I began teaching at Newbury Elementary in 2000 and have been in several positions. For several years, I was a Title 1 teacher. Then for 9 years, I was a sixth grade teacher for math and science. I really enjoyed teaching sixth grade and it is great to see my former students walking in the halls of the high school.
I am very happy teaching third grade for the second year and I especially love the Literacy Collaborative framework that we use for ELA instruction. It is very rewarding to watch student get excited about reading the books they choose and have them grow into the greatest readers.
I have 3 grown up children that, luckily, still live nearby so I enjoy spending time with my family. My other interests include gardening, and yoga.
