“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson 

I have been teaching for 17 years.  13 years in first grade and this is my fourth year in kindergarten.  I am excited to be at the very beginning of a child’s school career and help them to love school and learning! I am originally from Colorado but have lived in Webster for 12 years with my husband and two kids. My son will be a Junior at Webster Groves High School and my daughter will be a Freshman.  I believe in a safe, child-centered classroom where all kids are free to express themselves in their own way.  I believe it is important to individualize my instruction to meet the needs of each learner and help them to realize their fullest potential. 

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Anjelou
